Indianapolis Colts nose tackle David Parry was arrested in Scottsdale on Saturday.
Parry, 24, was arrested just after 2:30 a.m. Saturday at an apartment complex in the 6900 block of East Osborn Road in Scottsdale after someone called 911 regarding an assault and auto theft, according to Scottsdale police.
Parry laughed while being arrested before beginning to verbally attack officers, using gay slurs, according to the police report, which was obtained by ESPN. When the driver was collecting money after dropping off the other two passengers, Parry allegedly hit the victim on the head and left the scene with the golf cart. Police also responded to a hit-and-run collision, where they found Parry on a sidewalk, drunk, after crashing the cart, according to The Star.
When they contacted him, he displayed signs and symptoms of alcohol impairment, police said.
25% of all overdoses are from heroin
The National Center for Health Statistics said there were more than 52,000 overdose deaths in the U.S.in 2015. While opioid abuse runs rampant, it's a nonprescription narcotic-heroin-that remains a top killer in the U.S.
This evening, Scottsdale Police (AZ) confirmed to the Indianapolis Star that Parry had been arrested and charged with driving under the influence, suspicion of robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, and resisting arrest.
Police later learned Parry had no connection to the other riders.
The 6-foot-2, 300-pound lineman was a fifth round draft pick for the Colts in 2015.
He has 49 tackles and four sacks through 32 games in his National Football League career.
