The Boone County prosecutor dropped all other charges against Jack Trudeau, including a felony count of obstruction of justice and misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and furnishing alcohol to a minor.
Jack and Lisa Trudeau admitted to committing an infraction count of inducing a minor to possess alcohol, Prosecutor Todd Meyer said.
Zionsville attorney Mike Andreoli, who represented Jack Trudeau, said the couple were happy with the outcome and glad that there would be no criminal charges.
Police officers arrested Jack 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 alcohol to the teenagers, but authorities said he refused to provide them with a list he had naming those attending the party.
The Colts picked Trudeau in the second round of the 1986 draft out of Illinois. He played for Indianapolis until 1993 and then was with the New York Jets and Carolina before retiring in 1995.
