Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was arrested for a felony count of aggravated assault with a firearm in Miami on Saturday, but his lawyer says he doesn’t expect Dumervil to be charged when all the information about what happened comes to light.

Attorney Harvey Steinberg told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he believes Dumervil will be cleared after authorities in Miami complete their investigation.

No charges have been filed,” Steinberg said. “No aggravated assault or assault took place. And it is likely that once the full investigation is complete, no charges will be filed against Mr. Dumervil.”

Few details have emerged about what led Dumervil to be arrested on Saturday night. Aggravated assault with a firearm is a third-degree felony that could lead to a sentence of up to five years in prison.
