We just mentioned that Tom Heckert’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
Heckert’s colleague with the Broncos, Matt Russell beat him by blowing a 0.246, which is more than three times the legal limit, per the Denver Post.
Promoted a year ago to director of player personnel, Russell was arrested Saturday evening in Summit County after he rammed his Toyota Tundra truck into a parked Breckenridge Police Department patrol vehicle at approximately 40 miles per hour, according to an arrest affidavit prepared by the Colorado State Patrol.
The officer in the vehicle was taken to Summit Medical Center with neck and back pain and lacerations to his right arm. The officer was treated and released.
The collision with the Breckenridge police vehicle, which was parked on the right side of the road, came a few minutes after Russell hit a vehicle in Frisco. According to the arrest affidavit, Russell’s breath alcohol content measured at 0.246 — more than three times the legal limit. He had an open bottle of peppermint schnapps in his truck.
