A former Denver Broncos linebacker is scheduled to appear in court next month on accusations that he choked a high school assistant basketball coach after a game involving two girls’ teams, according to Aurora Police Department records.
Andra Davis, 40, has been issued municipal summonses for simple assault and assault and battery, an Aurora police general offense report showed. His court date is set for Feb. 6.
The incident occurred after a contentious Dec. 12 girls game between Regis Jesuit and Grandview High School. Davis’s daughter, Alisha, a forward for Grandview, was ejected late in the game after punching a Regis player, a YouTube video of the game showed.
After the on-court fight, John Koslosky, an assistant Regis Jesuit coach and girls athletic director, attempted to separate the two teams. Davis became upset because he thought Koslosky had touched his daughter, the police report said.
As the teams and coaches filed into the locker rooms after the game, Davis entered the hallway and allegedly began choking Koslosky with both hands while pushing him into the wall, police reports said. An off-duty officer who witnessed the altercation said Davis told Koslosky something to the effect of, “You don’t put your hands on my girl.”
Officers then attempted to pull Davis off of Koslosky with the help of Grandview fans, the report said.
Koslosky, who said he had chest pain and trouble breathing after the incident, took himself to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries, according to the report.
The Aurora Sentinel was the first to report the charges.
Regis Jesuit hired additional officers for the game, police said, in response to crowd issues from last season’s state championship game between the two teams.
Regis Jesuit coach Carl Mattei told The Denver Post in December that he doesn’t want to play Grandview again “until they are able to get things under control.”
A spokeswoman for Cherry Creek Schools, Abbe Smith, previously declined to comment on the incident, referring all questions to Aurora police.
Charisse Broderick King, spokeswoman for Regis Jesuit, said in a statement: “At Regis Jesuit, intimidation, harassing behaviors, bullying and threats are not acceptable or tolerated.”
Alisha Davis served a one-game suspension for the on-court fight.
Davis played 10 seasons in the NFL for three teams, including the Broncos in 2009. He previously told The Denver Post that he struggled with depression after retiring in 2011.
