Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller called the team’s Halloween party earlier this week a “private” and “safe” gathering that was separate from the arrest of former backup quarterback Chad Kelly.
Von posted some video on Youtube of the party.
Kelly attended the party and later was arrested on suspicion of first-degree criminal trespass in the early morning hours Tuesday. Kelly was then waived by the Broncos on Wednesday morning.

Miller said there were members of the Broncos’ security staff on site for the party, as well as additional security personnel Miller hired for the event. Miller also said there were members of the Denver Outlaws professional lacrosse team and the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings in attendance.
Kelly faces a Nov. 8th court date after a brief court appearance Wednesday in Arapahoe County Court.
Several players and team officials have privately said Kelly was “acting up” at that party and at one point was asked to leave the gathering just before he was arrested. Halloween parties always have the tendency to get a little wild.
