Former Colts QB Trudeau charged with drunken driving
ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jack Trudeau has been arrested on preliminary charges of operating while intoxicated, public intoxication and intimidating a police officer.
Zionsville police say the arrest occurred Sunday night.
A probable cause affidavit says the 52-year-old Trudeau threatened a police officer during the arrest. It says a portable breath test showed Trudeau had a blood-alcohol content of 0.31 percent, nearly four times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
A phone call for comment to Trudeau's Zionsville home rang unanswered.
The Colts picked Trudeau in the second round of the 1986 draft out of Illinois. He played for Indianapolis until 1993 and then with the New York Jets and Carolina before retiring in 1995.
He paid a $2,500 fine in 2007 after allowing underage drinking at his home.
