Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — For­mer In­di­anapo­lis Colts quar­ter­back Jack Trudeau has been ar­rested on pre­lim­i­nary charges of op­er­at­ing a ve­hi­cle while in­tox­i­cated, public in­tox­i­ca­tion and in­tim­i­dat­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer. Zionsville po­lice say the ar­rest oc­curred Sun­day night. A prob­a­ble cause af­fi­davit says the 52-year-old Trudeau threat­ened a po­lice of­fi­cer dur­ing the ar­rest. It says a por­ta­ble breath test showed Trudeau had a blood-al­co­hol con­tent of 0.31 per cent, nearly four times the le­gal limit of 0.08 per cent. A phone call for com­ment to Trudeau’s Zionsville home rang unan­swered. The Colts picked Trudeau in the sec­ond round of the 1986 draft out of Illi­nois. He played for In­di­anapo­lis un­til 1993 and then with the New York Jets and Carolina be­fore re­tir­ing in 1995. He paid a $2,500 fine in 2007 af­ter al­low­ing un­der­age drink­ing at his home.
