Broncos Rookie CB Cox Arrested in Alleged Sexual Assault

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 October 28th 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.

A judge declined a defense attorney’s request to reduce a $50,000 bond but did say that Cox can leave the state two times—apparently to play in Broncos road games at Arizona this weekend and at Oakland on December 19th. Cox waived extradition, meaning he agreed not to fight transport back to Colorado if for some reason he were arrested out of state.

Cox posted bail Friday afternoon and was released from custody, according to Douglas County jail guard Chad Walker.

The case filing was sealed at the request of the district attorney’s office. Cox’s next court hearing was set for Jan. 7.
