The NFL is dealing with another case of alleged domestic violence following the arrest of John Bowlen, son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.

He was taken into custody Wednesday night after police in Glendale, Colorado, responded to a dropped 911 call in which a Bowlen’s girlfriend told dispatchers her address and then said, “Hurry, please help!” The call was then disconnected.

When police called the number back, Bowlen answered the phone, saying, “This is the owner of the Denver Broncos. I am sorry, okay?”

The 29-year-old works for the Broncos in marketing. He’s also a candidate to take over the team’s ownership from his father, who has Alzheimer’s disease.

“She’s leaving now and I have nothing, there’s nothing to be said at all,” Bowlen told a police dispatcher.

“Okay, but you understand that a female calling asking for help on 911 is kind of a big deal,” the dispatcher responded.

“Yeah. Yeah. This is ridiculous — I haven’t done nothing wrong,” Bowlen said. Later in the call, he referred to himself as the “blood of the city.”

“As blood of the city, I am telling you right now, nothing is wrong and she is leaving my house, okay?”

“Okay, then maybe you need help escorting her out,” the dispatcher said.

“No, no, no, no no. Trust me,” Bowlen answered. “…And I am, I am sober. I am a man of my word.”

Bowlen then hung up. He was later arrested after his girlfriend told officers he had shoved her against a wall.
