Colts’ John Gill arrested

We often find that NFL player arrests decline during training camp, as players simply don’t have time to get into off-field trouble.

But the Colts had a day off today, and defensive tackle John Gill was arrested for public intoxication.

WTHR reports that Gill was found by police on the side of a road in Indianapolis, passed out, barefoot and unable to stand on his own.

Police say Gill was wearing disheveled and soiled clothing when they found him in a ditch, officers could smell a strong odor of alcohol and his speech was slurred.

Colts spokesman Craig Kelley told the station, “We are aware there is an incident. We do not have details and will have no comment.”

Gill played in two games for the Colts in 2009, his first NFL season.
