An intoxicated NFL player threatened to assault an Indianapolis Metro Police officer during a bar confrontation, and said he couldn't be arrested because "I'm a Colts player."

The NFL team cut safety John Boyett Tuesday following the Monday incident outside a downtown nightclub, reports the Indianapolis Star.

Boyett, 23, was arrested early Monday on preliminary charges of disorderly public intoxication and resisting law enforcement. Prior to his arrest, Boyett reportedly told the officers, "You can't arrest me; I'm a Colts player."

Boyett also threatened on officer, saying he was "going to come back and break your jaw."

The Colts had drafted the rookie safety in the sixth round of the 2013 draft out of the University of Oregon.

Another overpaid stooge that thinks he's better than everyone else. Too bad your college brain and big mouth got you thrown to the street. NFL seems to be loaded with dumb tough guy players. See Ya at McDonalds dummy! Another guy who had life by the short hairs and managed to screw it up.

If only I had a nickel for every time I was threatened by a sports figure. I like how they still hit the floor like a wet bag of cement just like everyone else. I am guessing they don't learn much about pressure points while in player training.

Good for the Colts. Class act handling this issue the way they did. The only problem now is this guy will surface somewhere else, making a big paycheck and probably hasn't learned any lesson at all. Usually people like this just blame somebody else for their problems. Stay safe.

Congrats to the Colts for immediately dealing with this problem child...another Darwin Award candidate.
