Colts punter arrested after drunken dip in canal

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis police have arrested Colts punter Pat McAfee on suspicion of public intoxication after he reportedly took a predawn swim in a canal in a nightlife district.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis police have arrested Colts punter Pat McAfee on suspicion of public intoxication after he reportedly took a predawn swim in a canal in a nightlife district.

Police arrested McAfee at about 5 a.m. Wednesday in the Broad Ripple district and took him to an arrest processing center.

Officers say the 23-year-old, in his second NFL season out of West Virginia, had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent -- nearly twice the legal limit if driving.

McAfee admitted he had been drinking and asked if he could walk home, but officers arrested him. They say he smelled of alcohol, his eyes were bloodshot and his speech slurred. He also informed them that his shirt was in the water.

Colts President Bill Polian said in a statement that the team is aware of the arrest.
