July 28—Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jack Trudeau, 52, is in trouble with the law again.

Trudeau faces seven charges after being stopped by Zionsville Police at 9:40 p.m. Sunday night, July 26. Charges include intimidation, a Level 6 felony; operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person, a Class A misdemeanor; public intoxication, a Class B misdemeanor; operating a vehicle while intoxicated, a Class C misdemeanor; open containers in passenger compartment, previous convictions, a Class B infraction; disregarding a police officer and disregarding an automatic signal, both Class C infractions.

“Sgt. Marius Klykken observed Mr. Trudeau disregard the stop light at US 421 and Willow Road,” said ZPD Chief Rob Knox. “He was stopped at Clarkston Road and U.S. 421.”

Trudeau was booked into the Boone County Jail at 12:44 a.m. Monday, July 27, where he remains in custody without bond, as of press time. According to the probable cause affidavit, Trudeau registered a .31 blood alcohol content.

He repeatedly shouted expletives at police and threatened to kill ZPD Officer Tyler Haston, who placed Trudeau in handcuffs.

In June 2007, officers responded to Trudeau’s Zionsville home on a noise complaint and the suspicion from two callers that underage drinking was taking place. Trudeau was arrested then on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and furnishing alcohol to a minor, both misdemeanors.

More than 10 teenagers were also arrested for possession of alcohol by a minor. About a week later, Trudeau was also charged with felony obstruction of justice.

Police said the felony charge was filed because police were not given a clipboard Trudeau was allegedly using to keep track of minors attending the party.

In December 2007, Trudeau and his wife, Lisa, each pleaded guilty to a Class C infraction of inducing a minor to possess alcohol. The prosecutor’s office dropped all other felony and misdemeanor charges against the pair. They each paid a $2,500 fine.
