After zipping through the Chicago Bears’ defense earlier this month during the Indianapolis Colts 29-17 victory in Super Bowl XLI running back Dominic Rhodes was arrested on suspicion of Indiana DUI early this morning after state police caught him speeding.
Rhodes was allegedly driving 81 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis around 3 a.m. this morning, according to Indiana State Police spokesman Sgt. Dave Bursten, who described the incident in an abc11tv.com story as a “normal run of the mill drunk driving arrest.” Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Lt. Doug Scheffel told television station RTV6 that Rhodes was taken to the downtown adult processing center early this morning.
Colts officials could not be reached for comment on Rhodes’ arrest on suspicion of Indiana DUI. Prior to his DUI arrest, Rhodes helped fuel the Colts to a Super Bowl XLI victory just a little more than two weeks ago when he rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown while coming off the bench. A backup to Edgerrin James and Joseph Addai while with the Colts, Rhodes’ Super Bowl XLI performance was his first 100-yard game since 2001 and only the sixth of his six-year career. Rhodes is currently a free agent.
