An ar­rest war­rant was is­sued Tues­day out of Ara­pa­hoe County for John Bowlen, son of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.

Bowlen’s ar­rest Sun­day in Cal­i­for­nia on sus­pi­cion of DUI and driv­ing over 100 mph trig­gered a com­plaint for re­vo­ca­tion of pro­ba­tion, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments filed Tues­day.

Bowlen had been placed on pro­ba­tion in Ara­pa­hoe County on April 14, 2016, for a 24-month pe­riod, af- ter a guilty ver­dict in a ha­rass­ment case.

Bowlen’s ar­rest Sun­day vi­o­lated pro­ba­tion in five ways, ac­cord­ing to the com­plaint, signed by County Court Judge Dar­ren Louis Vahle.

• Count 1: Bowlen did not re­port his ar­rest in Cal­i­for­nia.

• Count 2: Bowlen has not re­ported to his pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer since March 27, a vi­o­la­tion.

• Count 3: Bowlen has not re­ported to com­mu­nity ser­vice.

• Count 4: Bowlen has not en­rolled in court-or­dered do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and drug and al­co­hol treat­ment pro­grams.

• Count 5: Bowlen did not re­port that he had gone to Cal­i­for­nia.

Bond in the pro­ba­tion re­vo­ca­tion has been set at $1,287.50.

Bowlen, 31, was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail late Sun­day af­ter­noon on one mis­de­meanor charge of be­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of a drug or al­co­hol and one count of hav­ing a read­ing of more than the Cal­i­for­nia limit of 0.08 per­cent of al­co­hol in his blood.

A steady num­ber of 911 calls were made for more than 20 miles, Cal­i­for­nia au­thor­i­ties said. Bowlen was driv­ing a Jeep with a puppy in­side it.

When pulled over, Bowlen was un­co­op­er­a­tive and re­fused to have his blood taken. He men­tioned sev­eral times that he was the “son of Den­ver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen,” ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Tim Neumann, spokesman for the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol. “It didn’t help.”

Bowlen bonded out of jail in Cal­i­for­nia on Mon­day. Bowlen’s Den­ver­based at­tor­ney, Har­vey Stein­berg, did not im­me­di­ately re­turn a call seek­ing com­ment Tues­day.

In June 2015, Bowlen was ar­rested in a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in­ci­dent in which au­thor­i­ties say Bowlen pushed his girl­friend against a bath­room wall. He was also charged with a mis­de­meanor for al­legedly hang­ing up the phone when the woman tried to call 911.

In a con­ver­sa­tion with a 911 dis­patcher, who had called back af­ter Bowlen hung up, Bowlen said: “She is fine, and she is try­ing to cause a prob­lem. As the blood of the city, I’m telling you right now, noth­ing is wrong.”

Bowlen was con­victed in April 2016 and ap­pealed his con­vic­tion to the Colorado Supreme Court, which re­fused to re­view the ap­pear.
