Mobley convicted of drunken driving

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) -- Denver Broncos linebacker John Mobley was convicted of drunken driving on Friday.

A Douglas County jury also convicted Mobley of driving with excessive alcohol and speeding.

He faces between seven days and a year in jail and a fine of $450 to $1,000 on the drunken driving charge. Sentencing was set for July 22.

``I believe in my own innocence and, you know, you got to take it how it comes,'' Mobley said after the verdict.

Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano declined to comment on Mobley's future.

``It has to play out through the legal system, and that's what it's doing at this time. So at this point we don't have a comment,'' he said.

It was Mobley's second alcohol-related conviction. In 1999, he was charged with DUI after a car wreck but pleaded guilty to lesser charges of driving while impaired, driving without a license and careless driving. He was sentenced to one year's probation and ordered to complete 24 hours of community service.

His latest conviction stems from a Dec. 28, 2002, arrest in Parker after a roadside sobriety test. Police said he had been driving 69 mph in a 40 mph zone.

In late October, Mobley, a former All-Pro, bruised his spinal column in a collision with Baltimore's Jamal Lewis and teammate Kelly Herndon. He missed the rest of the season.
