Plummer offered plea deal in road rage case

Prosecutors offered Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer a plea deal to settle municipal charges in an alleged road rage incident, a police spokesman said.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (July 6, 2006) -- Prosecutors offered Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer a plea deal to settle municipal charges in an alleged road rage incident, a police spokesman said.

City attorney Dugan Comer made the plea offer during a private pretrial conference, said Englewood police investigator John Hoehler.

"An offer was made, and Jake's attorney was going to discuss it with his client," Hoehler said.

Hoehler said he didn't know the details of the offer. Comer's office referred all questions to Hoehler, and a message left by The Associated Press for Plummer attorney Harvey Steinberg wasn't immediately returned.

Another pretrial conference in the case was scheduled for Aug. 3.

In May, Plummer was issued a misdemeanor municipal summons of "injure or destroy property," similar to criminal mischief under state law.

The summons alleged Plummer was involved in an altercation April 20 with Douglas Stone of Denver. According to the complaint, Plummer kicked a headlight on Stone's pickup truck and then backed his Honda Element into the vehicle.

Plummer has denied the claim, saying he accidentally cut Stone off while talking on a cell phone.

He said he waved to apologize to Stone, but was bumped from behind. He got out of his vehicle, saw no damage, then called 911, Plummer said.
