Indianapolis Colts tight end Andrew Ogletree arrested in Hendricks County
INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts tight end Andrew Ogletree was booked into Hendricks County Jail on Friday afternoon.
According to the Avon Police Department, Ogletree preliminarily faces two felony charges — one offense of domestic battery committed in the presence of a minor younger than 16 years old and one count of domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury.
Avon PD said that its officers were summoned to an area residence on a report of physical assault between two adults on Dec. 26. Hendricks County Sheriff’s Deputies and Avon Police later detained 25-year-old Drew Ogletree at the site.
A victim at the scene was promptly transferred to a local hospital to have their injuries examined.
A warrant for Ogletree’s arrest was issued by the Hendricks County Prosecutor’s Office on Dec. 28. Ogletree turned himself in on Friday.
The Colts are aware of the allegations presented against Ogletree. The team released a statement on Ogletree’s arrest Friday night.
“We are aware of the disturbing allegations involving Drew Ogletree,” the Colts statement stated. “The team takes these matters seriously. We have alerted the NFL and are in the process of getting more information. We will have no additional remark at this time.”
An affidavit for probable cause claims Ogletree “body slammed” the victim onto the ground. Court filings state Ogletree told officers the victim attempted to hit him before he slammed the victim to the ground. The victim later confirmed they tried to smack Ogletree, per court filings.
Police reporting on the event shows the dispute started when the victim broke Ogletree’s phone.
In 11 games this season, Ogletree has picked up nine catches for 147 yards and two scores.
Counting Ogletree, the Colts have four tight ends on their roster. Ogletree’s status for the Colts’ clash with the Las Vegas Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium is unknown at this time.
The Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office reported Ogletree is now being held without bond.
