Indianapolis Colt's running back and
Super Bowl MVP, Dominic Rhodes was arrested after he was pulled over at 3 a.m. driving his GMC truck 81 mph in a 55-mph zone on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis' far northwest side, Indiana State Police spokesman 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said.
"It was a normal, run-of-the-mill drunk driving arrest," Bursten said.
Police also said Rhodes was cooperative with the state troopers who arrested him. Rhodes was held overnight and released on his own recognizance after an initial hearing Tuesday afternoon.
This isn't the first time Rhodes has had a run in with the police, back in 2002, he pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of battery and domestic battery. Under an agreement with prosecutors in that case, Rhodes was charged with domestic battery but avoided prosecution. Instead, Rhodes was placed in a diversionary program and underwent mental health counseling. This doesn't really look good for Rhodes, who will become a free-agent at the end of the month, but then again, he'll probably be signed by the Bengals. I hear they could use some depth at running back.
When asked how he felt about Rhodes recent run in with the law, Chris Henry said the following.
Reporter: Chris, have you heard about Dominic Rhodes getting arrest for a DUI?
Henry: DUI? Thats it?
Reporter: Um, yes. But Chris that can be a serious offense.
Henry: Well did he at least hit someone or pull a Sean Taylor on them?
Come on man, you gotta come harder than that. Shit son, DUI, hahahaha. I was getting DUI's when I was 10.
Reporter: No, in fact it was said that he was very cooperative with the police.
Henry: WHAT? He cooperated?!?! Damn, homie isn't gonna get any street cred for this. I woulda shank that muthafucker.
Palmer: CHRIS!!! Don't say that...they're gonna put that shit in the papers now...you can't go around threating to shank cops.
Henry: So. I don't care what they write, I keep it straight gangsta all the time...*pulls out knife* Never leave home with out it...Hey take my picture.
Palmer: Ok, Chris, seriously, your not "gangsta", your from Belle Chasse.
Henry: That don't mean anything, whatever man I gotta go do some gangsta shit. CYA.
