Melvin Gordon enters not guilty plea to DUI charge
DENVER — Facing potential discipline from the NFL, Broncos starting running back Melvin Gordon entered a not guilty plea in his DUI case in virtual court Thursday.
A disposition was set for Feb. 24 with a pre-trial scheduled for April 2 and a jury trial on April 8. There could be resolution before a trial.
Gordon was charged with a DUI and speeding 71 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone on Oct. 14. Gordon could be suspended by the league for three games depending on the outcome of the case. The NFL typically waits until the issue is resolved in court before deciding on discipline.
Gordon initially appeared virtually in court on Dec. 14 and the trial was continued until Thursday. As such, Gordon played out the remainder of the season with the Broncos. Buoyed by a strong second half, Gordon paced the Broncos with 215 rushing attempts for 986 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games (he missed the New England game with a sore throat because he was not allowed to travel, per COVID-19 protocols).
