If it had been a good day for the Denver Broncos, the lead story about the team yesterday would have been Von Miller's revelation that he's often been fined for farting at meetings.
It wasn't a good day for the Denver Broncos.
That's because TMZ featured a report about John Bowlen Jr., the 29-year-old son of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen (and possible heir apparent to his dad, who gave up control of the Broncos franchise last year as a result of Alzheimer's Disease) in the wake of his arrest Wednesday night, June 3, on domestic violence charges.
Moreover, the details, as shared in an affidavit obtained by 7News and other agencies, make John seem like a brainless, entitled man-boy whose behavior was reportedly fueled by alcohol and whippets - yes, nitrous-oxide chargers of the sort whose use even the most idiotic frat bros tend to outgrow by graduation.

Who? Supposedly someone "with whom he'd had prior contact" - and his statement apparently freaked out his girlfriend enough to run to the bathroom and punch in the aforementioned three digits.
The arrest report maintains that John reacted by shoving her against a wall, causing her to drop her cellphone, which he then grabbed.
Moments later, the 911 operator rang the line and John answered. He told the operator, "This is the owner of the Denver Broncos. I am sorry. Nothing is wrong. This is John Bowlen; Johnny Bowlen."
This assertion might have been more convincing had a woman not been heard screaming in the background. No wonder the cops rushed to the scene. The affidavit says she was crying in the bathroom upon officers' arrival and was "in fear for her safety and in shock at the time."

Despite his connections, John was held overnight in Arapahoe County jail, then released on a $1,000 bond following a Thursday afternoon court appearance.
The Broncos released a statement about John that reads:
We are disappointed to learn of the matter involving John Bowlen, who is a son of Owner Pat Bowlen and an administrative employee with the organization," the Broncos said in a statement.
As such, John will be placed on an indefinite leave of absence from the organization.

"It's incumbent upon us to have ..., 21 Sept 2014 [cached]
"It's incumbent upon us to have made progress toward getting one of the kids in that direction, significant progress, in those two years," Broncos co-owner John Bowlen, Pat's brother, told The Post.
Although the NFL has not set a precise time limit, John Bowlen said it's unclear how much longer than two years the league might be willing to wait - if at all.
"Maybe two more, maybe five, maybe none," John Bowlen said.
"I don't think he anticipated his demise would be as quick as this," John Bowlen said.
If none of the children can prove to the trustees they have the ability to run the team - and some have shown an interest in trying - then the family must sell, John Bowlen said.
"I think we'll know in two years who it will be," he said, "but whether they're ready to go is another matter."
John Bowlen said he doubts the NFL would be so harsh as to force a sale if a successor isn't at least identified within two years.
"I'm sure there are a number of people who would say that if it's not Pat Bowlen owning the team, it would be better just selling it, but it would not leave Denver," John Bowlen said.
"Pat wanted to do it on his own, but there was a need to lean into the company for credit, which we did," said John Bowlen, president and CEO of Regent Resources Ltd.
And when their mother, Arvella Regis Bowlen, died in 2006 at age 90, her interests were divided between Pat and John, making them whole owners of the Broncos, although paperwork shows that the team is held in holding company names.
Little has changed, said John Bowlen, who controlled as much as 49 percent of the Broncos but has been selling interest back to his brother.
At his death, the 40 percent John Bowlen retains today, though inherited by his children, would be sold to Pat's side of the family, John Bowlen said.
"They're obligated to take it out of my estate," he said.
"The desire is for one of Pat's children to show the ability to step into the role," John Bowlen said. "The wish is that one of those kids will demonstrate that ability."
The decision about which child takes over, John Bowlen said, rests with the three trustees: Ellis, 56; Broncos counsel Rich Slivka, 69; and Denver attorney Mary Kelly, 60.
Although John Bowlen remains the Broncos coordinator of corporate sponsorships, he said his work at Regent Resources keeps him too busy to consider trying to take on the team.
"It would take some pondering on my part," he said, noting the tax implications of such a choice. "It's not as if I don't have a say in things now, maybe not day to day, but some."
None of John Bowlen's children - four daughters ranging in age from 16 to 41, and a 34-year-old son - are allowed to take on ownership under the trust.
"I would think, with all conjecture aside, that he would certainly have the inside track, if he wanted it," John Bowlen said. "It's almost a no-brainer."
"It seems to me that it would be difficult not to approve of John," John Bowlen said, "but a mammoth part would be who my partners would approve.
