Perrish Cox, Broncos CB, Arrested for Sexual Assault
Lone Tree police responded to a complaint on Oct. 28 and, after an investigation, presented a case to the District Attorney, leading to charges and an arrest warrant. Cox was arrested without incident and bond was set at $15,000. The case filings are sealed to protect the identity of the victim.
"We are aware of the reports and are currently in the process of gathering information and reviewing the facts," said Broncos media relations director Patrick Smyth. "We are taking this matter very seriously and are fully cooperating with every aspect of the process."
Cox was considered one of the best cornerback prospects in the 2010 draft out of Oklahoma State, but character concerns caused him to fall to Denver in the fifth round. He was suspended for his final college game due to curfew violations and fined by the Broncos in September for making a throat-slash gesture at Matt Hasselbeck. He's appeared in 11 games for the Broncos this season, starting eight, with one interception and a forced fumble.
Four days before the alleged assault, Cox suffered a concussion against the Raiders, causing him memory loss and severe headaches. It is believed that concussions could be linked to behavioral issues.
