Last updated on Tuesday, September 3, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indianapolis Colts today waived safety John Boyett from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Marion County Jail records indicate that John Boyett was jailed at 2:52 a.m. Monday and charged with resisting law enforcement, public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Bond was listed at $150.

According to an IMPD report, an officer working at Tiki Bob's, 231 S. Meridian, was told by an employee of the business that an intoxicated male, later identified as Boyett, was being refused entry by employees. The male was said to have "cussed at patrons of the bar and people on the sidewalk." The report says the male left before officers arrived.

Later, police encountered Boyett when employees say he returned to the bar.

An officer tried to arrest Boyett, but police say he pulled from the officer's grasp, "threw a stiff arm toward me, and the fled on foot n/b on Meridian Street".

The report says officers gave chase and caught Boyett in an alley. When asked to identify himself, police say Boyett kept repeating "you can't arrest me, I'm a Colts player."

Boyett is from Napa, California. He played college football at Oregon. He was selected by the Colts in the sixth round (192nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He is currently on the Colts reserve/non-football injury list. He did not practice or play in the preseason.
