AURORA – A former Denver Broncos linebacker has been charged with assault and battery, after he was accused of strangling an athletic director from Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora last month.

According to police records obtained by the Aurora Sentinel, 40-year-old Andra Davis is accused of choking and pushing John Koslosky into a wall and against a trash can after a girls basketball game between Regis Jesuit and Grandview High School on December 12.

It happened after Davis’ daughter, Alisha, who plays for Grandview High School, got into a scuffle on the court with a player from Regis Jesuit. An Aurora police officer who was working off-duty at the game, pulled Davis off Koslosky with the help of others in the stands.

Police say Koslosky suffered a neck injury and a strained pectoral muscle from the incident.

According to reports, late in the game, and with Regis ahead by 25 points, Alisha Davis punched a Regis player in the throat after fouling out of the game, then ran off the court. She was later ejected, and the player who was punched was not seriously injured according to a spokesperson for the school.

After the ejection, according to police reports, Andra Davis “jumped over several people on the stands to get to the court” and stood near a wall. Police told Davis and his wife not to cross to the other side of the gym. At that time other parents told Davis they were not happy about what happened.

Davis then allegedly followed Koslosky into a hallway beside the gym and began choking him.

Davis, now retired, spent 10 seasons playing in the NFL, including one with the Broncos in 2009-2010.

He is due in court at 8 A.M. on Feb. 6.
