Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman David Parry was arrested over the weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The 24-year old was arrested just after 2:30 AM Saturday after someone called 911 regarding an assault and auto theft according to Scottsdale police.

The victim told officers he had picked up three people form a downtown bar in his “transportation cart” — a street-legal golf cart police says was used as a tax — and had dropped the two of them off. When he got out of the cart to collect payment, the victim told police that the third person, who has been identified as Parry, struck him in the head and left the scene on the cart.

A few hours later, police were called to a hit and run collision nearby, where they found the stolen golf cart crashed into a gate and Parry on the sidewalk, apparently intoxicated, according to police.


He was arrested on suspicion of robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, resisting and arrest and driving under the influence, per the Police.

Parry was a fifth round pick for the Colts in the 2015 Draft. In his first two seasons with the team, he has started every game and accumulated 49 tackles and 4.0 sacks.

The Colts released the following statement:

“We are aware of the reports and are gathering more information.”
