 LEBANON, Ind. (AP) -Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jack Trudeau was charged Monday with refusing to give police officers a list of teenagers attending a weekend party at his home involving underaged drinking.
Officers arrested Trudeau and 13 teenagers early Saturday after complaints about a loud party at his home in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Zionsville.
Trudeau, 44, waived his right to an initial court hearing Monday on the felony charge of obstructing justice and misdemeanor charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and furnishing alcohol to a minor.
Trudeau's attorney, Michael Andreoli, called the actions by police officers ``an excessive game of gotcha for a celebrity host.''
Police reported that when officers arrived at the home, Trudeau was in front with a clipboard in his hand and told them that he was taking everybody's names and keys so no one could leave the graduation party for his daughter and other students from Indianapolis Park Tudor High School.
Trudeau told officers if underage drinking was going on, he didn't supply the alcohol, but that he was not checking coolers or bags as people arrived, police said.
Andreoli said teenagers were arriving at the house at the same time as police officers.
``I think the police were in the backyard before Mr. Trudeau even got into the backyard,'' Andreoli said. ``This sounds absolutely excessive and over the top in terms of the action they took.''
Police reported confiscating 97 unopened cans of beer and 30 empty ones, along with an empty half-gallon of vodka and an empty bottle of champagne.
Boone County prosecutor Todd Meyer said he decided to file the felony charge against Trudeau because of the importance of the guest list for the police investigation. Meyer said he was not treating Trudeau's case differently than other underage drinking parties.
``It doesn't much matter who you are, where you live, who your parents are, who you know, the types of resources that you have,'' he said.
The Colts drafted Trudeau in the second round in 1986 out of Illinois. He played for Indianapolis until 1993, then was with the New York Jets and Carolina before retiring in 1995. He passed for 10,243 yards, 42 touchdowns and 69 interceptions in his 10-year career.
