DENVER (AP) - Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Elvis Dumervil has been cited for assault and disturbing the peace for an alleged run-in with a security guard at Invesco Field.
Denver court records show the reported incident happened on Oct. 24, the day the Broncos lost to Oakland.
Dumervil's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, told The Associated Press the linebacker forgot his credentials and a guard wouldn't allow him into a players' parking lot, despite Dumervil showing his driver's license.
Steinberg said it was a simple disagreement and that it's "unfair Elvis is being villainized."
The incident was first reported by Denver's KDVR-TV.
Dumervil has been out all season after ripping a chest muscle in training camp.
He's set to appear again in court Jan. 11.
