Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was arrested on Saturday night in Miami for aggravated assault with a firearm, according to CBS Denver. While details are not yet out on the incident, we do know that his bail was set at $7,500.

The Denver Broncos released a statement regarding the matter:

"Our organization is aware of the matter and is continuing to gather the facts. This is a very serious allegation, and we will thoroughly review the details while the legal process runs its course."

During the 2010 season, Dumervil been accused of assaulting a parking lot attendant at then Invesco Field at Mile High, but eventually those charges were dropped.

Dumervil missed that entire 2010 season with a torn pectoral muscle before returning in 2011. He had 9.5 sacks last fall and is looking to improve upon that as he and linebacker Von Miller continue to wreak havoc on opposing offenses.
