Broncos’ Knowshon Moreno gets DUI with ‘SAUCED’ license plates

DENVER — Denver prosecutors say Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has been charged with drunken driving and careless driving after getting pulled over in south Denver.

Denver District Attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said Tuesday Moreno is also charged with failure to have proof of insurance and is due back in court March 2 after police issued a summons.

Denver police Lt. Matthew Murray says Moreno was pulled over on Feb. 1 after allegedly driving 70 mph in an interstate construction zone where the speed limit was 45 mph. Moreno’s license plate on his convertible Bentley read “SAUCED,” according to a report by TMZ.

The Broncos issued a written statement saying they take the incident very seriously and will monitor the case while the legal process runs its course.
