According to the Sheriff's department, Kircus had been invited to a home in the Denver suburb of Centennial, by an woman who has not yet been identified. A disagreement between the woman and Kircus escalated to a point where the man who owns the home stepped in, claiming he made several attempts to ask Kircus to leave before the argument turned physical.
The alleged victim, also unidentified at this point, suffered lacerations and several broken facial bones and was treated at a local hospital.
Denver Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano refused comment on the issue, saying any statements made would be later in the week from head coach Mike Shanahan.
If found guilty, the 27-year old receiver could face anywhere from two to six years in prison. Kircus is currently free on $6,000 bail.
