INSIDE INFORMATION

Looking for the latest news from around the NFL? Our Insiders got you covered.

He was the Colts' sixth-round draft pick out of Oregon in April, but was on the non-football injury list with injuries to both knees.

An Indianapolis police report says the 23-year-old was upset he was not allowed into a downtown nightclub early Monday because he had too much to drink. The report says when an officer attempted to arrest Boyett, he ran. After he was caught, Boyett repeatedly argued officers could not arrest him because he ''was a Colts player.''

Police say Boyett faces preliminary charges of public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

The Indy Star had more details from the wild incident in their report.

From the Star:

When the officer attempted to place Boyett under arrest, the report said, he pulled away and threw a “stiff arm” at the officer. Boyett then ran northbound along Meridian Street. The report said Boyett continued fleeing, running onto Georgia Street and then through two alleys before he was caught.

The report said it took four officers to finally subdue and handcuff Boyett, who is 5-feet-10 inches tall and weighs in at 203 pounds, according to the Colts website.
