David Kircus, May 20th, 2007
Kircus pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge for punching a man and leaving him bleeding in a driveway. The victim also attempted to hold Kircus financially liable for the damages, which necessitated multiple surgeries to repair a broken eye socket and cheek bones. Kircus filed for bankruptcy in 2010, which put the Colorado case on hold, but the victim contended that Kircus couldn't be discharged and requested more than $500,000 in compensation for economic loss, pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement and punitive damages. Kircus, who claimed self-defense, passed a lie-detector test administered by his club, the Broncos, but was released a few months later.
