David Parry pleads guilty to two charges, avoids jail time

Colts defensive tackle David Parry reached a plea deal in Arizona to resolve some of the charges he faced as a result of stealing a golf cart after hitting the driver earlier this year.

The Indianapolis Star reports Parry pleaded guilty to attempted unlawful means of transportation, a low-level felony charge, and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, last week. He will avoid jail time and find out how long he’ll be on probation in late May. He still faces a DUI charge — the golf cart was legal for street use — in a different court.

Parry is also eligible for league discipline and players with DUI charges generally face two-game suspensions absent extenuating circumstances.

Parry has started every game for the Colts the last two seasons, but the additions of Johnathan Hankins, Margus Hunt and fourth-round pick Grover Stewart could mean a different direction on the defensive line in Indianapolis.

  1. DUI on a golf cart because it was street legal? That’s odd.

    Was he actually on streets in this cart? How do the rednecks get away with their mud parties?

  2. The golf cart is a street legal taxi. Parry got drunk, punched the taxi driver and stole his golf cart and then crashed it.

    He should be suspended by the NFL for this, regardless of his plea deal. He probably punched this guy because there were no women to beat up.

    Just love these NFL players!!

  3. I’m glad to hear he’s escaped jail time. Hopefully he’s smart enough to learn from this. One stupid incident can effect your whole life. The league should suspend him four games just for being an idiot. After that, Parry is a pretty decent player. He’s a smart kid from Stanford. He doesn’t fit the size mold that a lot of teams employ. He’ll go to someone who thinks outside the box. I can see a future in New England.
