LEBANON, Ind. (AP) -Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jack Trudeau pleaded innocent Tuesday to a felony charge of obstruction of justice in the investigation of underage drinking at his home during a high school graduation party for his daughter.
Trial was set in Boone Superior Court for Oct. 2.
Trudeau also is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and furnishing alcohol to a minor, both misdemeanors.
``Contrary to characterizations of the events, we were not hosting an underage drinking party,'' Trudeau said, reading a statement outside the courtroom. ``We were cooperative and helpful in every matter.''
Police arrested Trudeau and 13 teenagers June 2 after complaints about a loud party at his home in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Zionsville. 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.
Trudeau denied furnishing any of the alcohol to the teenagers, but authorities said he refused to provide them with a list he had naming those attending the party.
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.
