INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was arrested early Wednesday morning for public intoxication.
According to Indianapolis' WISH-TV, police arrived after a woman called 911 to report a suspicious, shirtless person, identified as McAfee. The station cited the police report in saying the officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from the punter, who was soaking wet and slurring his speech.
McAfee was not certain if he had been swimming in a canal, according to the report, but told the officer his shirt was in the water. The report said McAfee also told the officer he had "a lot" to drink.
The report said McAfee measured a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 on a portable breathalyzer, and was subsequently arrested. Colts president Bill Polian released a statement Wednesday addressing the arrest.
"We are aware that Pat McAfee was arrested this morning and charged with public intoxication," the statement said. "We are in the process of gathering the relevant facts. When that task is complete, we will deal immediately with the issue of club discipline. Until we complete that process, we will have no further comment."
McAfee is averaging 44.7 yards on 24 punts this season.
