Colts release John Boyett

The Colts did the right thing by releasing John Boyett as keeping the rookie would have said more about the team than the safety, who already looks foolish for the whole incident. Wells blog
Boyett was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement. He was released from jail after appearing before a judge and posting a $150 bond Monday evening.
The rookie out of Oregon was upset over not being allowed into the downtown establishment because he was "too intoxicated," according to the police report.
Boyett told a police officer that he couldn't be arrested because he's "a Colts player," according to the report. The report also noted that it took four officers to contain the 5-foot-10, 203-pound Boyett.
Boyett, a sixth-round draft choice, was on the team's reserve/non-football injury list. He issued an apology to Colts owner Jim Irsay and the organization via Twitter.
