Indianapolis Colts QB Chad Kelly has been suspended by the NFL for 2 games without pay stemming from his October home invasion arrest in Denver … NFL officials say.
As we previously reported, 25-year-old Kelly was arrested on Oct. 22 after leaving a Broncos Halloween party and wandering into a random person’s house in the middle of the night … while dressed like a cowboy.
Kelly sat down next to a woman who was holding her baby — and he was ultimately chased out of the home by a man who was smacking the QB with a vacuum cleaner tube.
Kelly was initially arrested for felony criminal trespassing — but later struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of 2nd-degree criminal trespass — a class 3 misdemeanor — and in exchange, the felony trespass charge was dropped.
As part of the deal, Kelly was also sentenced to 1 year of supervised probation, 50 hours of community service, and fines and fees.
Despite the legal issues, Kelly was recently signed to a contract with the Colts — though if he eventually makes it to the regular season roster, he won’t be able to play in the first 2 games of the season.
Kelly has been working with his famous uncle, Jim Kelly, to prepare for the 2019 season — and Jim previously told us he thinks Chad has what it takes to be successful in the league.
