John Bowlen turns him­self in to po­lice

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Tom McGhee

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.
