NFL player charged with felonies

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Indianapolis Colts’ tight end, Drew Ogletree, found himself on the wrong side of the law on Friday. The sophomore NFL player was arrested in Indiana, facing a pair of felony charges. The Avon police department reports that the charges include domestic battery committed in front of a child under 16 and domestic violence leading to moderate physical injury.

The charges stem from an incident on December 26, when police were alerted to a dispute between two adults. At the scene, Ogletree was reportedly taken into custody, and an injured individual was rushed to a hospital.

Authorities issued an arrest warrant for Ogletree on Thursday, leading to his voluntary surrender to the police the next day.

The Colts, in response to the allegations against Ogletree, have issued a statement acknowledging the gravity of the situation. The team is cooperating with the NFL as they gather more information about the incident.

Details from a probable cause affidavit reveal that Ogletree is accused of violently throwing the victim to the ground. Ogletree has reportedly confessed to the police that he pushed the victim down in response to an attempted slap. The victim’s statement to the police aligns with this version of events.

Ogletree, a sixth-round pick in the 2022 draft, is in his second season with the Colts. This season, he has played in 12 games, recording nine catches for 147 yards and two touchdowns.
