The headline is the former Colts quarterback Jack Trudeau was arrested for DUI. The real story is the amount of alcohol that was in his system at the time.
Via the Associated Press, portable breath-testing showed Trudeau’s blood-alcohol concentration to be 0.31 percent.
That’s nearly four times the legal limit of 0.08 percent, and it’s at the low end of the “life threatening” range of alcohol poisoning.
The Sunday night arrest includes a charge of intimidating a police officer.
A second-round pick in 1986, Trudeau played for the Colts through 1993. He also spent time with the Jets and Panthers.
