Indianapolis Colts’ Parry arrested for stealing golf cart, DUI in Scottsdale
PHOENIX — Indianapolis Colts’ defensive lineman David Parry was arrested in Scottsdale early Saturday morning, according to police.
The Scottsdale Police Department booked Parry on suspicion of robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, resisting arrest and DUI.
Scottsdale police responded to a call of an assault and auto theft at 2:15 a.m. Saturday near the crossroads of Osborn Road and 70th Street.
Authorities say Parry and two others were picked up from a downtown Scottsdale bar, and the altercation happened when they had arrived at their destination.
The defensive lineman is being accused of punching the driver of the golf cart, getting into the vehicle and driving away. Officers later found the cart crashed into a complex gate.
“(Officers) were able to locate Parry a short distance away,” Scottsdale Police Sgt. and public information officer Ben Hoster said. “He displayed signs of alcohol impairment. He was belligerent, assaulted the officers, and basically it was determined he was the suspect and so he was taken into custody after a brief struggle.”
Police later learned Parry had no connection to the other riders.
Hoster said this is a felony case because this is considered a “strong-armed robbery.”
The Colts defensive lineman has played the last two seasons for Indianapolis, starting every game. He has tallied four sacks and 49 tackles so far in his career.
The 24-year-old was selected in the fifth round (151st overall) by the Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Stanford.
