Matt Russell, Broncos exec, arrested in Breckenridge on DUI charges

Matt Russell, the Denver Broncos' director of player personnel, was arrested over the weekend after hitting two cars in Summit County — one of them a Breckenridge police car, The Denver Post has confirmed.

Russell — who turned 40 on Friday — first ran into a car in Frisco on Saturday evening. A few minutes later, he rear-ended a police car as he approached Breckenridge.

Russell was arrested and is facing charges of driving under the influence, having an open container of alcohol in his car, careless driving resulting in injury and failure to display proof of insurance.

Russell spent Saturday night in jail in Breckenridge and posted bond on Sunday.

After a standout career at the University of Colorado, Russell was drafted by Detroit in the fourth round of the 1997 draft. He was on the NFL's all-rookie team but had to retire in 2000 because of knee injures.
