COLTS' DEFENSIVE TACKLE BUSTED

Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Darrell Reid was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge early Sunday morning after allegedly trying to use his NFL status to gain entry for himself and his entourage into Club Oxygen, WTHR-TV reports, per Scout.com.
According to a police report, Reid tried to enter a packed Indianapolis club at roughly 2:00 a.m. this morning, telling security officers he should be let into the club, which was at capacity, because he plays for the Colts.  Police reportedly requested that Reid and his friends leave the area several times.
Reid is no stranger to offseason trouble. Last March, he was arrested on misdemeanor charges of suspicion of possessing less than 50 grams of marijuana, obstruction and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle.
Reid is an unrestricted free agent, so this latest incident could ultimately lead to him having to find a new NFL employer and a new batch of nightclubs to try to barge into.
This incident reminds me of an obscure, slightly funny Vince Vaughn gangster movie called Made, where he tries to get into an exclusive nightclub and isn’t on the “list.”  (It also brings to mind Night at the Roxbury.)
On another note, I didn’t even know they had clubs in Indianapolis.
[Editor's note:  That last crack represents the opinion of Aaron Wilson only, and is not necessarily indicative of the views of ProFootballTalk.com.  Since Wilson primarily writes for a Baltimore-area publication, we assume that he's still pissed about the fact that Indy stole the Colts.]

    “On another note, I didn’t even know they had clubs in Indianapolis.”
    It was probably a barn.

    2 things i got from this:
    1. If he said he played for the colts, and they believed him, they could have been trying to keep him from getting in trouble by being in there… obviously the trouble part didn’t work out, LOL.
    2. They didn’t recognize him from the only play people do recognize him from, the ST hit on Chris Henry

    Let this be my formal request for more “NIght at the Roxbury” references. THank you.

    Two A.M. in Indy? Try the Pancake House. Da Boyz in Da Hood be rockin’ the blueberry syrup on their flapjacks.

    I’ve visited Indy a few time and the do have “clubs.” It’s code for TGIFridays.

    If by “the fact that Indy stole the Colts” you mean that Indy welcomed the Colts when Baltimore’s government forced them out, then yeah, they stole the Colts.

    Yeah, those Baltimoreans sure know their nightlife scenes. Finest crackhouses in all the world.

  14. cheeseburger says: Feb 8, 2009 1:46 PM

    Aaron, what year is this? Get over it.

  15. Facts Domino says: Feb 8, 2009 2:05 PM

    If only Indy had a Mcnulty and a Bunk to keep their slum rows clean!

  16. reptar says: Feb 8, 2009 2:13 PM

    Or maybe Aaron Wilson is pissed about the fact that the Colts own the Ravens. I don’t know.

  17. TheTylerRose-BestEver says: Feb 8, 2009 3:02 PM

    Well played, Aaron. Keep up the good work.
    Florio, stop being so PC! WTF?!

  18. Aaron Wilson says: Feb 8, 2009 4:47 PM

    I’m from Washington originally and am not bitter at all about the Colts’ move even though I do sympathize with Baltimoreans for losing their football team. I was just making a comment on the city of Indianapolis.

    “I’m from Washington originally and am not bitter at all about the Colts’ move even though I do sympathize with Baltimoreans for losing their football team. I was just making a comment on the city of Indianapolis.”
    Do you sympathize with them taking Cleveland’s team too?

  20. BmoreDavy says: Feb 8, 2009 5:16 PM

    I’m glad the Colts left now, otherwise we wouldnt have gotten a first class organization with a first class owner instead of a drunk like ersay…Love ya Aaron. WTF Florio? No WNST link on your site? I wouldn’t know you existed if not for them…

    Come on Florio, you rip on other towns all the time. Don’t bust the new guy’s balls just because he made a funny.

  22. dashoe says: Feb 8, 2009 6:05 PM

    Ah, another east coast elitist.

  23. macaw says: Feb 9, 2009 7:10 AM

    “Club Oxygen”? Is that a lesbian bar?

    Nobody got Sean Taylor…ed? Yeah, nobody got murdered in their own home protecting their family. Brilliant comparison. Sorry, but spanky07 (spanky? honestly, who actually chooses the name spanky?) is the punk here.

    Yeah, I’ve been to Indianapolis a few times, and Wilson is wrong. They do have clubs there. They use them to knock the cows out.
