ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have suspended two executives who are facing drunken driving charges.

Director of player personnel Matt Russell was suspended indefinitely without pay Monday, and director of pro personnel Tom Heckert was suspended for a month without pay.

Executive vice president John Elway’s top two advisers were arrested and jailed on suspicion of drunken driving in separates incidents within a month of each other.

On July 6, Russell hit two vehicles, including a police SUV in Breckenridge, injuring an officer. Russell registered a 0.246 percent breath alcohol content, three times the legal threshold for a DUI violation in Colorado, according to the arrest affidavit.

Heckert’s blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.162 percent upon his release seven hours after his June 11 arrest in Parker, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office report.
