Suspended Broncos executive Matt Russell appears in court

Suspended Denver Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell made his first court appearance from his driving under the influence case where he allegedly ran into the back of a police car.

According to the CBS affiliate, Russell's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, asked for a continuance.

Steinberg said more investigative work needs to be conducted.

Russell allegedly rear-ended one car, then the police car, causing the officer to be hospitalized and miss a lot of work.

Russell's alleged Breathalyzer test: 0.246, way over the legal limit.

He's suspended indefinitely and is getting treatment, rehabilitation and counseling services.
