(WHAS11) – The Denver Broncos receiver who was accidentally overpaid on a bet at this year’s Kentucky Derby is accused of doing more than betting that day.
Wes Welker won thousands of Derby day and hit it big on the race itself.
Welker was so excited that he handed out $100 to random race goers.
Churchill Downs discovered they overpaid Welker an estimated $15,000.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Broncos have suspended Welker four games days before their season opener in Indy because he used a type of ecstasy while at the Derby.
Churchill Downs dropped their efforts to collect any money overpaid to Welker.
