John Bowlen turns himself in to police
John Bowlen, son of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, surrendered Saturday to Glendale police to face claims that he violated conditions of his probation in a domestic violence case by driving drunk in California.
Bowlen, 31, was arrested on July 30 on two misdemeanor drunken driving charges after he was pulled over for passing cars on the median of a California highway at more than 100 mph, officials said.
“It appears he turned himself in at approximately 8 a.m. Saturday morning,” said Glendale Police Chief W.J. Haskins. “I believe he had his attorney with him.”
The arrest triggered a complaint for revocation of probation, according to court documents filed last week. Bail in the probation revocation has been set at $1,287.50, which Bowlen posted.
Bowlen had been placed on probation in Arapahoe County on April 14 for a 24month period after he was convicted in a harassment case.
Bowlen’s July 30 arrest violated his probation in five ways, according to the complaint, signed by Arapahoe County Judge Darren Louis Vahle, who signed a warrant for his arrest:
• Count 1: Bowlen did not report his arrest in California.
• Count 2: Bowlen has not reported to his probation officer since March 27.
• 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.
