Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno was pulled over for speeding and arrested for DUI on February 1, according to a Denver district attorney's spokeswoman.

Moreno was pulled over while doing 70 mph in a 45 mph construction zone in a Bentley convertible and an officer smelled alcohol on his breath. Moreno did poorly on the roadside sobriety tests and was taken into detox.

According to the report, cops described Moreno as "very respectful and polite." Of course, when the vanity license plate of the Bentley you're speeding around in while allegedly drinking reads "SAUCED," there's really no other way to behave when the cops bust you.

“We take the incident involving Knowshon Moreno very seriously and are thoroughly reviewing this matter,” the Broncos said in a statement Monday. “Our organization will continue to gather information and closely monitor this issue while the legal process runs its course."

Moreno had a big step-back season in 2011, starting just two games (and playing in eight), while rushing for 179 yards and no touchdowns. He did catch 9 balls for 101 yards and a touchdown, however, before tearing his ACL on November 15.

UPDATE (Feb. 8, 12:12 p.m. ET): Moreno has been charged with drunken driving, careless driving and failure to have proof of insurance. He is due in court March 2.

Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

If they wanted Knowshon to walk a straight line, they should have have made it parallel to the line of scrimmage.
Very Nice...

Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

I have a friend that recently shared with me that the state
of Colorado is very strict when it comes to the drinking and driving policy.
Wouldn’t on think this is something that’s communicated within the Bronco's organization
(rhetorical question)?

High profile member of our society that flaunt their affluences
should not act so irresponsible, attracting attention is one thing but acting
STUPID is quite another. I guess what Forrest Gump said was true, “Stupid is
what Stupid does”!!!

Report: Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

I was probably one of the happiest guys around when the Broncos drafted Knowshon Moreno.

Wow! some one actually admitted to making a mistake on this site.  Pats fan should take note how to man up.  Tebow is changing the fans too. Smile

Report: Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

I was probably one of the happiest guys around when the Broncos drafted Knowshon Moreno.  Looking back, it was a horrible pick.  Knowshon has been a bust.  Now that his character is in question, they should cut this guy loose.  He's a tad bit better than garbage, but not much more than that.
