John Boyett had an interesting career at Oregon. He started from his freshman year onward, but, due to injury, was unable to start his senior year and so got a head start on preparing for the NFL. After getting selected in the sixth round of May’s NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts, Boyett has found himself on the wrong side of the law after getting kicked out of an Indianapolis bar late Sunday night.

Boyett was not allowed into a downtown bar for his level of intoxication. The report read that when an officer tried to arrest him for public intoxication, the former Duck was irate and ran.

He now sits in a Marion County jail in Indianapolis, waiting for a bail hearing. He faces charges of public intoxication, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Boyett ranked among the top three Ducks in tackles his freshman year and made three watch lists coming into 2012. He played one game, against Arkansas State, recording two tackles and an interception.
