BREAKING: Colts’ Robert Mathis Arrested

Former Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis was arrested early Tuesday morning on a drunken driven charge, according to Hamilton County (Indiana) court records.

He was arrested shortly after midnight in the city of Carmel, a suburb just north of Indianapolis on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

The Indianapolis Colts released this statement on the arrest:

 

“We are aware of the incident involving Robert Mathis last night, we are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.”

The Colts hired Mathis last month to be the team’s pass rush consultant.

Mathis spent his entire 14-year career playing with the Colts. He’s the franchise leader in sacks with 123 and has an NFL-record 40 career strip sacks.

His best season was in 2013, where he racked up 19.5 sacks.

Mathis was also suspended for the first four games in 2014 for using performance-enhancing drugs.
