Denver Broncos defensive lineman Ryan McBean was arrested on suspicion of stalking.
McBean turned himself in Friday and is free after posting a $50,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 28.
McBean was at practice Monday as the Broncos returned from their bye week. Denver coach John Fox said the team was aware of the arrest and that it was “gathering information.”
If convicted, McBean could face up to three years in prison.
No fine for coaches
The NFL will not fine coaches Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz for their postgame tiff Sunday.
In celebration of a 25-19 victory at Detroit, 49ers coach Harbaugh gave Lions coach Schwartz a roundhouse handshake and a backslap that Schwartz took offense to. A scrum broke out, with coaches and players involved.
“Fortunately, there was no fighting and thus no basis for a fine,” a league spokesman said. “However, both coaches told [NFL executive VP] Ray Anderson today that their postgame conduct was wrong and will not happen again.”
