"Jack Elway, the son of Broncos executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway, was arrested early Saturday on charges of assault and disturbing the peace.
"John Albert Elway III, 24, was booked into the Denver jail and was released Saturday on $550 bail, according to jail records.
"Elway -- a graduate of Cherry Creek High School in 2008 and Arizona State University in 2011 -- lives in Newport Beach, Calif., according to his Facebook page.
"'This is a personal family matter, and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it,' said Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth.
"Contacted by phone, a woman at John Elway's Cherry Hills Village home, who identified herself as Jack's stepmother, declined to comment.
"The alleged assault happened at Colfax Avenue and Lipan Street, according to Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez.
"The alleged victim, a woman, contacted the Auraria Campus Police Department and told them that Elway was at an address listed to John Elway in Cherry Hills Village, Lopez said.
"Cherry Hills police went to the home, and Denver police picked up the younger Elway and took him to Denver jail."
The younger Elway is scheduled for an 8:30 a.m. MST appearance at Denver County Court on June 5, per TheDenverChannel.com.
He received all-state football honors in his senior year of high school and was recruited by the Arizona State Sun Devils, McGhee adds.
The Denver Post report says Jack Elway left the team in 2009 as there were already five quarterbacks competing for the starting job.
His father played 16 seasons in the NFL, all with the Broncos, from 1983-1998. He amassed 51,475 passing yards, 300 touchdowns and 226 interceptions on a 79.9 percent passer rating, per ESPN stats.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
