INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Colts safety John Boyett was arrested early Monday in Indianapolis after he tried to run away from police.
According to the police report, the 23-year-old was upset he was not allowed into a downtown bar because he had too much to drink. The report said when an officer attempted to arrest Boyett, he ran. After he was caught, the report said, Boyett repeatedly argued police could not arrest him because he ``was a Colts player.''
Boyett faces charges of public intoxication, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The Oregon alum was Indy's sixth-round draft pick in April, but has not practiced because of injuries to both knees.
The injuries kept him out of all but one game last season and he is now on the non-football injury list.
