Coban Porter, the brother of Nuggets star Michael Porter Jr., has been taken into custody over a fatal crash, according to the Denver Police Department. The 21-year-old was taken into custody in connection of the fatal crash that occurred in the south Denver area. He was arrested early Sunday at the scene.
The sophomore guard at the University of Denver had been rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered this offseason.
Police spokesman Kurt Barnes told the Denver Post that Porter was arrested on charges of suspicion of vehicular homicide and reckless driving.
A University of Denver spokesperson provided a statement to the Denver Post.
“This is a tragic and heartbreaking situation, and our deepest sympathies are with those involved in the accident, their families, and friends,” the statement read. “All the resources of our campus and broader community, including counseling services, are available to any DU community member in need of assistance 24/7.”
He averaged 11.4 points in 28 games as a freshman last season.
