As if your Monday sucked.
Former Colts quaterback Jack Trudeau appeared in Boone County court today following his arrest after hosting a party for his daughter and some of her fellow graduates of Park Tudor High School at his suburban Indianapolis home.
Despite his efforts to provide a safe haven for teenage drinking - making all kids sign in, camp in his backyard, and hand over their keys (was this a party or a reenactment of The Ice Storm?) - Trudeau still faces those pesky charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and now a felony charge of obstructing justice since the sign-in list can't seem to be found. Now that's a no-snitching policy Carmelo Anthony could get behind.
Yet, the emerging detail that's getting most of my attention - beyond the empty half gallon of vodka, beer bong, and only 30 of 127 beers opened (evidently Trudeau hadn't started drinking when the cops arrived) - is a little request made to police.
According to WTHR's report, Trudeau beseeched the officers asking, "What do we have to do to make this go away?"
Most likely Trudeau was expecting a response of 'I'm gonna tie my shoes, and if I stand up and don't see 12 drunk kids or any beer cans, me and Deputy Manning are gonna go elsewhere about our business. Go Colts!"
But whose to say conjecture and hearsay aren't pointing in a monetary direction? Hell, he already sprang for the beer bong. What's a few more clams to grease the wheels?
