John Boyett makes statement following arrest, release by Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts waived John Boyett following an arrest early Monday morning. He got drunk at a local bar and proceeded to harass patrons by cussing them outside of the establishment. Police were called to the scene and Boyett made a declaration of sorts to the officers.

“You can’t arrest me, I’m a Colts player,” Boyett repeatedly told the officers. All this name dropping happened before he even played a regular season for the Colts.

John Boyett released a statement on his twitter account apologizing for his actions.

Here is John Boyett’s statement:

I want to apologize to Mr. Irsay @JimIrsay , the Indianapolis Colts organization @Colts and the Indianapolis police. The Colts gave me an opportunity and I blew it. My behavior didn’t and doesn’t represent who I am. I am deeply embarrassed and disappointed in myself. All I can do now is learn from it and never repeat it. I look forward to showing my true character in the future.
