INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Colts running back Kenton Keith was out of jail Monday after being arrested for refusing to leave a nightclub parking lot and yelling at officers that he was a Colts player who had done nothing wrong, police said.
Officers working security tried to clear a crowd from the parking lot of the Cloud 9 club after it closed at 3 a.m. Sunday. The 27-year-old Keith and several others refused to leave and were laughing, dancing and joking, police said.
Police eventually ordered them to put their hands on a vehicle, but Keith refused and took out a cell phone to record the incident, according to an Indianapolis police report.
He kept saying, ``I'm a Colts player, I'm a Colts player,'' the report said.
Police handcuffed him when he refused to put his hands behind his back and he was taken to jail, police said.
Keith was charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, resisting law enforcement, public intoxication and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, because a man he brought to the club with him was 19, police said. He was released from jail later Sunday on his own recognizance. His initial hearing is set for Wednesday.
There was no phone number in the Indianapolis area for Keith. The Associated Press left a message with the Colts seeking comment.
Keith has been with the Colts for one season after playing in the Canadian Football League. He scored four touchdowns last season, with 533 rushing yards and 77 receiving yards.
