John Boyett, a now-former Broncos practice squad player who went to Oregon, was arrested early Wednesday and charged with third-degree assault, theft and harassment. The details of Boyett’s night are… interesting. Via the Denver Post:
police say he drunkenly head-butted and punched a cab driver, stole a shovel from a construction site then tried to hide from officers by covering himself in mulch, court records show.
Boyett, 24, told arresting officers to “contact his boss John Elway” before repeatedly slamming his head into a patrol car window while yelling and spitting, records say.
Amazingly, Boyett had a similar reaction in a 2013 arrest when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. 13 months ago he repeatedly told police, “you can’t arrest me, I’m a Colts player.” Boyett, a second-year safety, was released by the Broncos on Thursday following the arrest.
