Chad Kelly’s arrest video has been released, and it’s pretty strange.
The former Ole Miss star and Broncos gunslinger was arrested and initially charged with first-degree criminal trespass back in October after he allegedly walked into somebody’s house, and just decided to sit down next to a woman and her baby. He was cut from the Broncos following his arrest.

Now, the arrest video along with security camera footage has been released, and it’s almost comical. Kelly is dressed as Woody from “Toy Story” as he runs out of the residence being chased by a man with a vacuum tube.

Then, he appears incredibly distraught and nervous in police custody. Again, it’d almost be funny if it wasn’t so damn sad and disturbing to watch a full grown man throw away his NFL career while dressed as a movie character.
You can watch both videos below:
There is some good news in all of this for the once-upon-a-time promising quarterback prospect. According to TMZ, he agreed to a deal Wednesday to plead guilty to second-degree criminal trespassing in exchange for the felony charge being dropped. He was sentenced to one year of supervised probation, 50 hours of community service, and fines and fees.

Now, we’ll have to see whether or not he can make an NFL comeback. He’s got all the talent in the world, but he just can’t seem to stay on the straight and narrow.
Time will tell, but not having a felony on his record certainly can’t hurt his comeback chances. Swag Kelly got off pretty easy all things considered.
