Colts safety John Boyett arrested

Rookie safety John Boyett has not practiced or played for the Colts this summer because he’s been on the non-football injury list as a result of injuries to both knees that limited him to one game in his final year at Oregon and it seems he needs to find a better way to keep himself occupied while waiting to get back on the field.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Boyett, a sixth-round pick in April, was arrested early Monday morning on┬ácharges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement after an incident that started when Boyett was refused admission to a bar. According to the police report, Boyett wouldn’t leave the area in front of the bar and was “cussing” at others in the area when an employee asked police to intervene. Boyett then allegedly tried to run when police attempted to arrest him, throwing a “stiff arm” at an officer in the process, before he was finally corralled by four officers.

“Mr. Boyett had an odor of an alcoholic beverage about his person, his speech was slurred, his eyes were red and glassy, and he had a very abusive behavior toward everyone,” according to the police report.

Boyett allegedly told the arresting officers that they couldn’t arrest him because he was on the Colts and told one officer that he would “come back and break your jaw” while making fun of the hair and nose of another officer.

    The sense of entitlement these prats possess.

    As a Colts fan, can we have Nevis back? No? Darn ..
    Seriously this guy isn’t the first to behave like that, but don’t you actually have to play in an NFL game before one behaves as such?

    Sounds like he would get along well with Manziel. Someone should introduced them and they can go party together after signing few autographs and flashing the easy money sign.

    He might be an idiot, but at least it took four guys to tackle him.

    colts win colts win. Another great draft pick. What ever happened to the lunatic that was running around D.C. this summer with a pistol. Like owner like players.

    No one should be arrested for getting drunk in India-no-place. It should be encouraged so you don’t lose your mind from boredom.

    Did his two bad knees keep him out of the Rookie Symposium too, where they’re supposed to teach you to not be a DA?

  16. indyspeedo says: Sep 2, 2013 6:44 PM

    Alcohol adds an element of fun to the NFL.

    Makes on wonder if all the acting out by NFL players is from CTE.
