Broncos safety T.J. Ward is accused of throwing a glass mug at a strip club bartender after she told him outside drinks were not allowed, according to court documents.

Ward appeared in Denver court on Friday and was issued a summons in connection with a disturbance at an all-nude strip club.

Authorities set a $1,900 bond for the 27-year-old Ward. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 23.

Denver police issued a warrant for Ward, whose given name is Terrell Ray Williams, on Thursday, charging him with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace.

Ward's attorney, Abe Hutt, said the warrant was mistakenly issued. His client did not know he was wanted until he saw a television news report while waiting Thursday night to board a flight at Denver International Airport, Hutt said.

Ward's first encounter with the female bartender at PT's All Nude, 3480 S. Galena St. in Denver, came when he and three other men approached the bar to ask for change , according to a statement of probable cause filed by Denver police. The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. on May 10.

Ward was holding a glass bottle, and the bartender asked him to take the bottle to his car or throw it away. Ward told the bartender he was allowed to have the bottle, according to the court document.

About 10 minutes later, Ward returned to the bar with a non-alcoholic drink purchased at the club and asked for a cup of ice. The bartender then saw him pour from the same bottle he had been told to take outside, the document said.

The bartender took the cup and poured out the drink. When she turned to help another customer, she felt something hit her wrist, the document said.

At the time, the bartender did not know who the customer was. Other staff members later told her it was Ward.

The bartender was able to identify him through a picture from the Internet. And police detectives were able to review video surveillance from inside the club.
