Tom-Heckert-Denver-BroncosENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A second Denver Broncos executive is facing drunken driving charges, The Associated Press has learned.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, Tom Heckert, the Broncos’ recently hired director of pro personnel, was arrested in Parker on the night of June 11 and charged with driving under the influence and careless driving.

The news comes one day after Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell apologized for his arrest over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said the Broncos are aware of this other matter involving Heckert and would provide comment shortly.

A pretrial conference is scheduled for Aug. 30 for Heckert. His lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, wasn’t available for comment.
