Broncos safety Will Parks facing misdemeanor harassment, domestic violence charges

Broncos safety Will Parks is facing misdemeanor charges of harassment and family offense domestic violence because of an alleged incident with his former girlfriend in late March.

Parks was arrested March 31 and released on a $1,500 bond. A restraining order has also been filed against him, and he is scheduled to appear in Adams County court June 30 at 9 a.m.

“We became aware of the issue involving Will Parks immediately after it occurred in March,” the Broncos said in a statement. “It was promptly reported to the league office and we are continuing to monitor this matter.”

The NFL said it is reviewing Parks’ case and, regardless of the legal outcome, he could face additional penalty if the league concludes he violated the personal-conduct policy.

According to the arrest affidavit obtained by 9News, who first reported the news, a Brighton police officer was called to the home of the alleged victim on March 24. The woman claimed she had been in a relationship with Parks that recently ended and that she went to his home in Englewood to collect her belongings.

She told the officer that Parks accused of her stealing his football jerseys and rings, as well as his birth certificate and social security card. She also said Parks called her repeatedly and threatened her, saying he was going to go to her house “with his people” to recover his belongings.

Parks, according to the woman, also told her he was going to have his cousin fly in from Philadelphia to “beat her ass.”

The woman received multiple calls and text messages from Parks’ brother, Tyree, including one while the officer was at her house. Tyree, according to the affidavit, told her: “He was just bluffing, he was trying to scare you.”

In an interview with the officer on March 31, Parks claimed that he was upset because he thought his former girlfriend stole his belongings but that he never threatened her.

Parks’ attorney, Carrie Slinkard, told 9News that Parks was cooperative with police and that she and her client “adamantly deny the allegations of criminal conduct reported by the named victim.”

“We are extremely disappointed in the officer’s decision to arrest Mr. Parks given the circumstances at issue in this case,” Slinkard added. “But we nevertheless trust the criminal justice system and are confident this case will end in a just result. My client is looking forward to his day in court.”
