DENVER — Police in Arapahoe County booked John Bowlen, the son of the owner of the Denver Broncos, into jail over the weekend. Officers say he turned himself in on a warrant for violation of his probation.

Glendale Police say Bowlen turned himself in on Saturday at about 8 p.m., just a week after he was arrested in California on two charges related to drinking and driving. 

Police in Arapahoe County say Bowlen, who has been in trouble with the law in the past, was wanted for violating his probation, issued in a 2015 harassment case. 

Bowlen's arrest in San Luis Obispo County, Calif. triggered the warrant, officers confirmed. Part of Bowlen's probation mandated he did not leave the State of Colorado for two years. 

The court ordered probation out of Arapahoe County also mandated Bowlen complete 24 hours of community service and pay $1,287.50 in court fees. Police say he hasn't paid or completed the community service.

Bowlen's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, has declined to comment on the ongoing case.
