Colts Have Another Idiot Kicker

I guess Peyton Manning has another "liquored up, drunk, idiot kicker" to be critical of. Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee decided to spend his bye week getting drunk and taking a swim in a nearby canal. He's the fourth Colts player to be arrested on an alcoholic related charge this year. Who do they think they are? The Bengals?

Police arrested McAfee about 5 a.m. in the Broad Ripple neighborhood, known for its nightlife. Officers say the 23-year-old, second-year player from West Virginia had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for driving in Indiana. Police were called after a woman at a red light said a man with no shirt approached her car and tried to get in. Like any smart person, she ran the red light and called 911. I can't say I don't blame her.

When officers arrived and approached McAfee and asked did he go swimming in the canal. McAfee replied "I'm not sure". Shows he needs to lay off the liquor if he can't remember anything.  They then asked him how he got wet and he said it was raining. Nice story if it were actually raining. There wasn't a hint of rain in the forecast. He then told officers his shirt was in the water.

Officers proceeded to ask how much he had to drink. McAfee's answer. "A lot because I am drunk". Hey, at least he was honest about it. Sometimes I don't know how much that helps out when dealing with the police.

   McAfee told police that he was waiting for a friend to get him, but also that he planned to take a taxi home, the report said. He asked if he could walk home, but officers arrested him. They say he smelled of alcohol, his eyes were watery and bloodshot and his speech slurred. Officers said they had to help McAfee stand up after giving him a breath alcohol test.

I know, Colts brass will wait for the facts to come out. In the meantime they need to monitor this guy during the bye. Or go hang with him for a swingin' time. He's a regular party animal.
