 CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -A newly released investigator's report says Broncos receiver David Kircus threatened a man after Kircus allegedly punched him in the face.
Kircus faces charges of second-degree assault and violent crime after an altercation at a party in suburban Denver early Sunday. He was initially arrested on the assault charge alone.
An Arapahoe County sheriff's report made public Friday said Kircus had been asked to leave the party, and the alleged victim had escorted him to the sidewalk. The report said Kircus pointed out they were no longer on private property and hit the other man in the eye, causing multiple fractures.
``You don't know what I'm capable of,'' Kircus told the man, according to the report.
Kircus, who resumed his NFL career last season after spending a year away from football working in a sandwich shop, is free on $6,000 bail. If convicted, he could be sentenced to two to six years in prison.
District Judge Anne Ollada is considering whether to loosen a restraining order against Kircus so he can travel out of state while awaiting the outcome of the assault case.
At a hearing Friday, defense attorney Harvey Steinberg also asked Ollada to lift a restriction on alcohol consumption. Ollada said she wanted to hear from the alleged victim before making a final decision. Another hearing was scheduled for later in the day.
The restraining order, issued Tuesday, also bars Kircus from contacting the alleged victim or any witnesses. The order is routine in such cases, prosecutors said.
Kircus wore a pinstripe suit, a maroon shirt and a tie to court Friday. Both he and Steinberg refused to comment afterward, but as they approached a bank of TV cameras outside the courthouse, Steinberg told his client, ``I'll be the blocker.''
Coach Mike Shanahan is waiting to see how the case develops but said this week, ``Obviously, if he didn't handle himself the right way he won't be with us.''
Kircus is a backup receiver and return specialist who joined the team last season. He had nine receptions for a team-leading 20.8 yards per catch and returned six punts for a 14.3-yard average last year.
