Chad Kelly has been charged with first-degree criminal trespass.

According to the arrest affidavit, officers were dispatched to a residence on the 3200 block of S. Lincoln Englewood around 1:16 a.m. Tuesday.

According to a press release from the Englewood (Colo.) Police Department, Kelly illegally entered a home and was later chased out by the resident. He sat on the couch next to her and started "mumbling incoherently".

Marco Torres, another occupant, then confronted Kelly in the living room and hit him with an aluminum vacuum tube in the upper back "as he kicked the male out of the residence". The man, later identified as Kelly, was taken into custody and transported to Arapahoe County Prison.

Police said the investigation was ongoing and no further information would be released at this time. He posted a $2,500 bond and is due back in court on Wednesday. When searching the area, officers spotted a man matching the description inside a black SUV.

Kelly aka Swag played for Clemson in 2013 and was 10-for-17 for 58 yards, but was dismissed following 2014 spring practice.

This is such a weird story and again, even the best case scenario for the Broncos leads to team-inflicted punishment, perhaps league punishment, and Kevon Hogan being the team's backup quarterback moving forward.

According to a police report, Kelly allegedly said, "I'm going to go to my auto and get my AK-47 and spray this place".

"I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be".
