Denver Broncos rookie cornerback Perrish Cox has been arrested for investigation of felony sexual assault.
Cox was taken into custody Thursday night following an investigation into an alleged assault reported on Oct. 28 and brought to a Douglas County jail, said Michelle Kivela, public information officer for the city of Lone Tree, which is about 20 miles south of Denver.
Cox appeared Friday in Douglas County Court in nearby Castle Rock wearing a gray prison uniform. His feet were shackled and he was escorted by an armed sheriff’s deputy.
Cox posted bail Friday afternoon and was released from custody, according to Douglas County jail guard Chad Walker.
The alleged assault occurred a few days after Cox was knocked out of a game against Oakland on Oct. 24 with a concussion. He spoke afterward about having no memory of the 59-14 rout and missed the team’s trip to London for an Oct. 31 game against San Francisco.
Police raid Raven’s home
Police raided the home of Baltimore Ravens rookie kick returner David Reed earlier this week to investigate potential drug activity. No charges have been filed, but police did take evidence from his residence.
Baltimore County police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough says police entered Reed’s home around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to “investigate potential narcotics activities.”
