Being a Super Bowl champion doesn’t make one immune to being arrested for driving under the influence. Over the weekend, Super Bowl champion and Denver Broncos backup safety, Shiloh Keo is facing a charge of driving under the influence in Idaho, where he is a resident of the city of Eagle, Idaho.
Idaho State Police have reported that Denver Broncos, Keo was taken into custody in the early hours Saturday morning and booked into the Ada County Jail.
According to law enforcement, Keo was stopped by an Idaho trooper for a broken tail light. At the time of the incident Keo was driving alone, and failed field sobriety test. He refused a breathalyzer so authorities proceeded with requesting a warrant for a blood alcohol test.
Keo was not on the on the jail roster later in the morning, indicating he had posted bail. Jail officials didn’t have additional information.
We are aware of the matter involving Shiloh Keo and are in the process of reviewing it,” said Patrick Smyth, the Broncos’ vice president of public relations.
Keo gained notoriety when the Broncos signed him late in the season after he reached out to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips on Twitter. Phillips coached Keo with the Houston Texans. Keo played in only four regular season games with one interception. But, his biggest moment came in the championship game when he recovered the New England Patriots’ onside kick to preserve the Broncos 20-18 victory. He finished with two tackles in the postseason, and served as a backup punt returner.
Keo could possibly face suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Denver Broncos have not release their statement on that decision.
