Denver Broncos defensive tackle Adam Gotsis was booked in Atlanta on March 7th on a charge of rape. The allegation was made on February 1st, but the incident was alleged to have taken place in 2013, when Gotsis was playing college football for Georgia Tech.
Via the Denver Post:
Gotsis of Lone Tree surrendered on March 7 at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta on a charge of strong-arm rape, according to a Atlanta police incident report.
He was released after he paid a $50,000 bond, said Tracy Flanagan, spokeswoman for the Fulton County Jail.
Gotsis, who is 6 feet, 5 inches and weighs 295 pounds, is accused of overcoming the will of a 25-year-old woman on March 9, 2013, in Atlanta.
The woman, who is now 30, reported the alleged rape on Feb. 1, according to the police report.
The Broncos and Georgia Tech both commented on the arrest, again via the Post:
“We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.
“The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.”
“Georgia Tech learned of the arrest today and therefore has no additional information at this time. The report was filed with the Atlanta Police Department on Feb. 1, 2018 and all questions should be directed to APD.”
Gotsis was a second round pick in 2016, and he started 13 games for the Broncos last season, recording two sacks.
