Indianapolis police have arrested Colts punter Pat McAfee on suspicion of public intoxication after he reportedly took a predawn swim in a canal in a nightlife district.

Police arrested McAfee about 5 a.m. Wednesday in the Broad Ripple neighborhood and took him to an arrest processing center.

Officers say the 23-year-old, second-year player from West Virginia had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 - nearly twice the legal limit if driving.

Colts President Bill Polian said in a statement that the team is aware that McAfee was arrested.

"We are in the process of gathering the relevant facts," Polian said. "When that task is complete, we will deal immediately with the issue of club discipline. Until we complete that process, we will have no further comment."

A call to police came shortly before 5:00 a.m. regarding the presence of a "suspicious person" in the canal. McAfee was the "suspicious person," and he was determined to be both shirtless and drunk.

According to Weather.com, the current temperature in Indianapolis as of this posting is 39 degrees.

police said he took a pre-dawn swim in a city canal and told them "I am drunk" as he tried to explain why he was sopping wet.

McAfee is the fourth Colts player to be arrested on alcohol-related charges this year.

Before the arrest, McAfee posted this on Twitter: "Bye week bye week bye week. Time to get some ish done. Happy Tuesday Party people."
