Colts Waive Rookie Boyett Day After Arrest

Boyett_2013 [1]The Indianapolis Colts have waived safety John Boyett a day after he was arrested on public intoxication and other charges.

He was the Colts’ sixth-round draft pick out of Oregon in April, but was on the non-football injury list with injuries to both knees.

An Indianapolis police report says the 23-year-old was upset he was not allowed into a downtown nightclub early Monday because he had too much to drink. The report says when an officer attempted to arrest Boyett, he ran. After he was caught, Boyett repeatedly argued officers could not arrest him because he “was a Colts player.”

Police say Boyett faces preliminary charges of public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.
