Colts player charged with DUI after golf cart incident

Seattle Seahawks fans may be interested to learn that a defensive lineman for the Indianapolis Colts, David Parry, was charged with DUI and auto theft on Feb. 25 after what appeared to be a wild night of partying. According to Scottsdale, Arizona, authorities, Parry was accused of stealing a golf cart and crashing it into a gate.

At about 2:30 a.m., authorities received reports that a man, later identified as Parry, had stolen a golf cart that a taxi driver was using. After dropping off two other men, Parry allegedly assaulted the driver and stole the vehicle. Shortly after, police received another report that a golf cart had crashed into a gate.

When the authorities arrived at the scene, they reportedly found Parry and the golf cart. It appeared that Parry was under the influence and he reportedly admitted that he had drunk alcohol prior to the incident. Additionally, the police said that he was "dry heaving" while they were taking him into custody. He was ultimately charged with multiple offenses, including drunk driving, auto theft, resisting arrest and criminal damage.

Drunk driving charges can have serious legal consequences, especially if the defendant has prior DUI convictions. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident, a person could face a lengthy prison sentence, fines, lose driving privileges and have employment-related issues as well. A criminal law attorney may request a hearing to challenge the license suspension, especially if the person drives a vehicle for a living. Once this hearing is out of the way, the attorney may focus on challenging the charges. For example, the charges could be challenged if the authorities did not follow procedures when taking the person into custody.
