Denver Broncos defensive back William Parks is reportedly facing misdemeanor charges. 

On Thursday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reported Parks was arrested March 31 and released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond. The misdemeanor charges are for "harassment and non-violent domestic violence stemming from an incident in Brighton with his former girlfriend."

The Broncos said in a statement, per Klis, "We became aware of the issue involving Will Parks immediately after it occurred in April. It was promptly reported to the league office and we are continuing to monitor the matter."

Klis said Parks could face review from the league regarding its personal conduct policy in addition to the legal issues he is facing.

Klis cited an arrest affidavit that said Parks accused the victim of stealing football memorabilia, his social security card and his birth certificate after they ended their relationship. The victim said he then made continuous menacing phone calls to her and threatened to have his cousin fly to Colorado to "beat her ass."

In addition to the misdemeanor charges, a restraining order was also filed against Parks.
