Broncos DT Adam Gotsis arrested on 2013 rape charge

13 March 2018

On March 7, Gotsis surrendered at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia on the charge of strong-arm rape according to an Atlanta police incident report.

Denver Broncos defensive end Adam Gotsis was arrested Wednesday in Atlanta under a complaint of rape stemming from an alleged Georgia Tech incident in 2013, according to Georgia authorities. A then 25-year-old woman met Gotsis through a mutual friend and said she was raped at his home. A spokeswoman for the Fulton County Jail said Gotsis was released after paying a $50,000 bond, according to The Post.

The Denver Broncos released a statement to the Denver Post, saying they take the issue seriously.

"We immediately reached out to law enforcement and have proactively co-operated with all aspects of the investigation while maintaining communication with the team".

The alleged victim did not file a report until February 1, 2018.

The team added that it will be monitoring the legal proceedings and will remain in communication with the league in regards to the matter.

Gotsis' attorney, Sara Becker, denied the allegations in a statement issued later Monday.

The Australian-born player was the 63rd overall pick in the 2016 draft, taken by the Broncos in the second round.

"While we were disappointed to learn of the turn the investigation was taking, we steadfastly maintain that the allegations are false", the statement read.

"Georgia Tech learned of the arrest today and therefore has no additional information at this time", Georgia Tech said. After being limited due to injury in 2016, he played in all 16 games in 2017, making 13 starts and finishing with 41 tackles and two sacks.
