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.

Report: Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

Cut the bum. He's been a complete bust since the day he was drafted. He's such a tough runner that his own shoelaces could tackle him. Lance Ball was a hell of a lot better in his role. Hey Moreno, Maurice Clarett wants his Grey Goose back.

And so it begins...  What's the over/under for how many charges will be laid on NFL players in the offseason?  I'll set the bar at 15 and a half.  Care to weigh in?

Report: Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

If you have money for a Bentley then you have money for a cab.  Didn't have a good last couple of years and know he pulls this DUI.  Not working in the right direction.  I'm not going to be surpriesed if he's released.  Drafting or Free agent RB is a must.

Yet another Josh McDaniels mistake. Should have taken Brian Orakpo and he drafted this bum instead.

Report: Knowshon Moreno arrested for DUI

I'm not ready to give up on this guy just yet but this may be the "nail in the coffin" that Fox was looking for to either trade or release him.  McGahee was awesome last year and still has 2-3 years left on his contract.  The Broncos will without a doubt draft a RB, my guess would be in the 3rd or 4th round.  Knowshon needs to take care of business sooner rather than later if he wants to remain a Bronco for much longer!
