Melvin Gordon’s DUI and speeding charges hearing has been pushed back to March 10th. The jury trial for the running back remains April 8th.
Gordon back in January entered a plea of not guilty to the charges. The lawyer for Gordon, Robert Malen, entered the plea of not guilty for his client.
“Some new information has come up that is the subject of discussion between the parties,” Malen said in a virtual hearing with Denver Country Court Judge Olympia Fay and Deputy District Attorney Mary Krenzen.
Currently a pre-trial hearing remains on the docket for April 2nd with a jury trial scheduled for April 8th.
The hope is that the two sides can come to some sort of agreement so that a jury trial can be avoided.
The Broncos running back was arrested back on October 13th on suspicion of driving under the influence and going 71 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Gordon didn’t take a breathalyzer, instead choosing to take a field sobriety test.
Officers at the scene of the incident didn’t see the test as enough evidence to let Gordon go, and instead pressed forward with charges.
This past season Gordon was the NFL’s 10th-ranked rusher, ending the season with 966 yards.
