Former first-round draft pick Knowshon Moreno has gotten himself into some serious trouble, with police charging him with driving drunk.
Tuesday, officials said the Denver Broncos 24-year-old running back was charged with failure to provide proof of insurance, with Denver police saying Moreno was caught driving 70 mph in a 45 mph construction zone while also under the influence.
The Associated Press reported that the Broncos issued a statement saying, “We take the incident involving Knowshon Moreno very seriously and are thoroughly reviewing this matter. Our organization will continue to gather information and closely monitor this issue while the legal process runs its course.”
Moreno was considered the best running back available in the 2009 NFL Draft, and he was picked 12th overall in the first round.
In 2011, Moreno lost his starting position to Willis McGahee.
