Colts punter Pat McAfee was arrested early Wednesday morning for public intoxication. And just to make the story that much more interesting, McAfee was arrested because he drunkenly decided to swim in a city canal at 5:00 AM. The Colts player was reported to authorities after he approached a vehicle stopped at a red light near the city canal. The woman driving the car ran the red light to avoid the shirtless McAfee and then called police to report the strange incident.
McAfee was found by authorities without his shirt on which was probably sopping wet along with the rest of his clothes. When asked if he had been swimming in the canal McAfee replied “I am not sure”, but then said that he was wet besause it had been raining that night (it had not rained that night in Indianapolis). When asked how much he had drank McAfee replied “a lot because I’m really drunk.”
To make the story that much better McAfee also left the following post on his Twitter account earlier in the evening before he took a dip in a city canal at 5:00 AM:
Bye week bye week bye week. Time to get some ish done. Happy Tuesday Party people.
It’s one of the strangest ways an NFL player has been charged with public intoxication and apparently kickers and punters are surprisingly among the most absurd when it comes to the crime. Jeff Reed of the Steelers has had several reports of vandalizing gas station bathroom property and other incidents and don’t even get me started on Sebastian Jankowski of the Raiders.
But you have to feel for McAfee. It probably seemed like a good idea at the time to take a dip in a city canal at 5:00 AM in the morning and then remove your shirt and attempt to belligerently climb into some stranger’s car parked at a red light. I guess the guy really knows how to party just like our old friend Frank the Tank from Old School.
Bring your green hat Pat McAfee.
