Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was arrested in Miami this past Saturday night and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and now we know the full details of the story. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Dumervil and a friend exited his Land Rover while stuck in traffic and lifted their shirts to flash guns at the occupants of a car that had previously cut them off. The incident report states that an employee of a nearby Victoria's Secret witnessed the incident and called police.
When police arrived on the scene, Dumervil and his friend were still stuck in traffic. Police ordered them out of the car at gunpoint, at which point Dumervil was asked if there was a gun in the vehicle. According to police, Dumervil said that there was not, but a search revealed there to be a gun in the vehicle's glove compartment.
Per the witness, the exiting of the vehicle by Dumervil and his friend was preceded by verbal name-calling and threats from both sides. The witness also reported that the occupants of the other car threw an object that struck Dumervil's Land Rover.
The assault with a deadly weapon charge is a third-degree felony, and Dumervil was released after posting a $7,500 bail.
