Police: Colts’ David Parry ‘belligerent’ toward officers after allegedly stealing cart in Arizona
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Indianapolis Colt David Parry was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona on Saturday.
The 24-year-old was taken into custody just after 2:30 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 6900 block of East Osborn Road after someone called 911 regarding an assault and auto theft, police told our newsgathering partners at the IndyStar.
The victim told officers he had picked up three people from a downtown bar in his “transportation cart” and had dropped two of them off. When he got out of the cart to collect payment, Parry allegedly hit the victim in the head, got in the cart and sped away.
Police were later called to a hit-and-run collision nearby, where responding officers found the cart crashed into a gate. Officers later found Parry on the sidewalk, apparently drunk, police said. They described him as “belligerent” and said he berated the officers who arrested him.
“He was very belligerent, cursing at the officers and insulting them, and when they went to arrest him he was yelling and pulling away,” Sgt. Ben Hoster with the Scottsdale Police Department told KTVK. “It took them a long time to get him into handcuffs.”
The 6’2” nose tackle was arrested on suspicion of robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, resisting arrest and driving under the influence, according to police.
Parry played collegiately at Stanford before being nabbed by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
The Colts said they are “aware of the reports and are gathering more information” about the case.
