Two months after safety T.J. Ward signed as a prized free agent with the Denver Broncos, he is facing an arrest warrant after an incident at a nightclub.

Denver Police issued the warrant stemming from a May scuffle that took place and his failure to respond to a summons.

"The incident involving T.J. Ward occurred on the evening of May 9 at a nightclub in southeast Denver called Centerfold," Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. "We determined that there was a dispute, and he was involved in a minor altercation.

"He was issued a summons for simple assault and disturbing the peace, both misdemeanors. The arrest warrant was issued Thursday because he hasn't turned himself in yet."

The 27-year-old Ward signed a four-year, $23 million contract in March after four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, including a Pro Bowl trip in 2013.

"We have been aware of this issue and will continue to review all of the facts," the Broncos said in a statement.
