Walter Andrew Brister IV, former Denver Broncos QB son, arrested in connection to fatal hit and run


The son of a former Denver Broncos quarterback was arrested Wednesday morning in Louisiana in connection with a fatal hit-and-run traffic crash.

Walter Andrew Brister IV turned himself in Wednesday morning to Baton Rouge police, said his attorney John McLindon. Brister was booked in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a charge of felony hit and run driving, according to a Wednesday news release from the Baton Rouge Police Department.

McLindon said he hopes his client is released on bond later Wednesday.

Brister was driving a black Ranger Rover SUV when he allegedly struck a pedestrian, who was crossing the street in the 500 block of Ben Hur Road, according to a Sunday news release from the Baton Rouge Police Department. Jude Jarreau, 44, was killed in the crash, which happened around midnight Sunday, the news release said.

The Brister family is well known in Colorado for football. Brister’s father, Walter Andrew “Bubby” Brister III, played for the Denver Broncos for three seasons and won two Super Bowl Rings. His son, who also plays quarterback, committed to the University of Northern Colorado in 2020, but announced in December that he was leaving the team. He joined Louisiana Tech entering the 2022 football season but is not currently listed on the roster on the team’s website.
