Never let it be said there’s nothing to do in Indianapolis ; Colts P Pat McAfee (above) was arrested early this morning after being found swimming in the city’s Central Canal. The Indy Star’s Scott Thien and John Tuohy provide the spectacular details ;
A 911 call was received about 4:45 a.m. this morning from a woman who said a wet, shirtless man tried to get into her car at a traffic signal at Broad Ripple Avenue, according to WTHR (Channel 13). The woman said he had œblond, shaggy hair wearing jeans, and that he œlooks like he™s freezing.
œI think he™s out of it, the caller told the dispatcher.
Police later found McAfee, 23, in the area, shirtless and soaking wet, and arrested the second-year Colts player at the corner of Broad Ripple and College avenues, IMPD spokesman Lt. Jeff Duhamell said.
Police say McAfee smelled of alcohol, his eyes were watery and bloodshot and his speech slurred. When police asked McAfee if he had been swimming in the canal, he replied, œI™m not sure, according to an IMPD report. He later said, œit was raining, and said his shirt was œin the water, according to the report.
When asked how much he had to drink McAfee replied, œA lot because I am drunk.
œI know I am drunk but does that mean I cannot walk home? McAfee asked, according to the report. Police also said the kicker had a hard time standing up.
