Colts DT David Parry Arrested

Colts defensive tackle David Parry was arrested in Arizona in late February, and the lineman is facing a number of chargers. According to Stephen Holder of The Indy Star, Parry has been charged with theft of a means of transportation and resisting arrest with physical force, which are both felonies. The defensive lineman was also charged with misdemeanor assault.David Parry (Vertical)

Parry was reportedly one of three passengers in a “transportation cart” — per Hays, essentially a golf cart taxi — whose driver was ultimately the victim who contacted police. Per the victim, once the other two riders had been dropped off, Parry hit the driver in the head and stole the cart. Police later found the cart crashed into a gate, with Parry, apparently intoxicated, on the sidewalk.

Parry, 25 next week, was selected by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. During the first two years of his NFL career, Parry has started every game and racked up four sacks. Last year, Parry graded as just the No. 110 interior defender among 127 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus. Entering the third year of his rookie deal, Parry is set to make the minimum in 2017, with a cap charge of roughly $670K.

While it’s too early to assess Parry’s legal status or standing with the Colts, the charges and description of the incident clearly represent the culmination of several poor decisions. New Indianapolis general manager Chris Ballard will now have the Parry’s fate in his hands as he gathers facts on the situation.

    They should have a no tolerance clause for jerks just like this. It should be one screw up and your contract is voided and you’re permanently banned from the league. This would weed out all of the scum who are undeserving of the money that gets thrown at them. They want to act like a thug then take their money away and let them figure out a paycheck somewhere else.

    I’m sorry I had to do a double take when I saw this…I LOVE THIS SPORT!!! I cannot believe so many football players do this sh-t
    So many opportunities to play a game,work out, have tons of sexual legally and money to spend. This makes absolutely no sense, none at all. This behavior is killing the sport, and taking chances away from people who actually are tough but know how to act. As a fan of the sport this is truly horrible.
