John Bowlen, son of Broncos owner, arrested on suspicion of DUI in California, TMZ reports

John Bowlen was arrested Sunday for DUI by the California Highway Patrol, TMZ reports.

Bowlen, the son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, was pulled over by troopers at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Paso Robles area, TMZ reports. Bowlen was booked on two counts of misdemeanor DUI.

The Denver Post has contacted the California Highway Patrol for more information on Bowlen’s arrest.

In June 2015, Bowlen was arrested in a domestic violence incident in which authorities say Bowlen pushed his girlfriend against a bathroom wall. He was also charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor for allegedly hanging up the phone when the woman tried to call 911.

Bowlen’s girlfriend told investigators he was under the influence of “whippets” — nitrous oxide — and alcohol at the time of the encounter. In the 911 call, she screamed and hung up. The dispatcher called back and Bowlen answered.

“She has had seven beers,” Bowlen had told the dispatcher. “She is 95 pounds, and she is being picked up by another male who she works out with. She is fine, and she is trying to cause a problem. As the blood of the city, I’m telling you right now, nothing is wrong.”

Bowlen was convicted in April 2016 and appealed his conviction to the Colorado Supreme Court saying that the officer who arrested him did not properly fill out a summons.

The Colorado Supreme Court refused to review the appeal.
