Colts News: Rhodes Arrested, Freeney Franchised

I don't have a whole lot to say about the two big Colts headlines this morning. Not a big surprise that Dwight Freeney got the franchise tag.

The bigger news and biggest surprise is that Dominic Rhodes got arrested for DUI. Dangit! From the Star's Vic Ryckaert:

Indiana State Police stopped Rhodes in a silver GMC at 3:02 this morning on northbound I-65 near 71st Street, near the Colts' Northwestside complex, First Sgt. Dave Bursten said in a written statement. Police said Rhodes was driving 81 mph in a 55 mph zone.

Marion County court records show Rhodes, 28, was arrested on an initial charge of misdemeanor operating a vehicle while intoxicated. His vehicle was impounded and is being stored at a lot in Speedway.

You know Dungy, Polian, and Irsay are not going to be happy about this one. Maybe Irsay will be a bit more forgiving, considering his experience with these situations.

At least it happened in the off-season and to a player who very well may not be here next year. It is unfortunate though. And they start bringing up every mistake he's ever made in the past. (Yes, I see the irony in the fact that I brought up crap from Irsay's past and he has nothing to do with this) Tough to be famous.

And now there's this: Dallas Clark ejected from HS game
