Colts rookie arrested for intox, resisting arrest



John Boyett, a rookie safety for the Indianapolis Colts, was arrested early Monday morning on charges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement after not being allowed in a bar, reports the Indianapolis Star.

Boyett, 23, is on the team’s reserve/non-football injury list. He was a sixth-round draft pick for the team out of Oregon.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Boyett suffered slight injuries to his arm and elbow when he fell while attempting to flee from police.

The police report says that Boyett repeatedly told police “You can’t arrest me… I’m a Colts Player.”

“I am going to come back and break your jaw.” Boyett later told an officer. He also made fun of an officer’s hair and nose, the report said.

The  incident began when Boyett was denied access to Tiki Bob’s for being too intoxicated. He then cussed at patrons.
