PHOENIX — Body camera footage released Friday showed Indianapolis Colts’ defensive lineman David Parry using foul language and slurring his speech during his arrest in Scottsdale.
Authorities said Parry and two others were picked up from a downtown Scottsdale bar by a golf cart driver, but when they were getting dropped off, Parry allegedly punched the driver, got into the vehicle and drove away.
Officers later found the golf cart crashed into an apartment gate and Parry a short distance away.
When Scottsdale Police Sgt. Ben Hoster was asked about the incident in question two weeks ago, he claimed the suspect “was belligerent” and “assaulted the officers.”
The video — which KTAR News decided not to post because of the amount of foul language — appeared to confirm some of Hoster’s account.
When officers tried to get Parry to understand they were there because of his accused actions, he started cursing at police and continued to do so for almost the entirety of the 12-minute video.
He told the officers repeatedly, “I’m going to come after all of you.”
The footage did not show Parry physically assaulting the officers.
Parry pleaded not guilty to charges on robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, resisting arrest and DUI on Friday.
Police said the other two riders in the golf cart were not connected to Parry.
The 24-year-old was selected in the fifth round (151st overall) by the Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Stanford. He has played the last two seasons for Indianapolis, starting every game. He has tallied four sacks and 49 tackles in his career.
