Colts’ Andrew Ogletree placed on Commissioner Exempt List

Indianapolis Colts tight end Andrew Ogletree was placed on the Commissioner Exempt List following his arrest on two counts of domestic battery, the league announced Saturday.

Ogletree was arrested Friday and charged with two felonies: domestic violence committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old and domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, both of which are level 6 felonies in the state of Indiana.

Players on the exempt list are not allowed to play in games or practice with the team, but they still receive payment.

Some further details regarding the arrest and allegations emerged Saturday, according to James Boyd of The Athletic, which obtained a probable cause affidavit.

The first officer on the scene discovered the woman upstairs in a bedroom crying in pain. The woman told police that after breaking Ogletree’s phone and attempting to hit him during an argument, he “lifted her to about his shoulder height and body slammed her onto the ground.”

She claimed Ogletree then told her, “They will never believe you,” after she said she needed an ambulance. The woman was later placed in a cervical collar by on-scene medics and transported to a hospital for further evaluation of her injuries. Ogletree’s young son was in the home when the incident occurred, according to the affidavit.

According to Boyd, the incident occurred Tuesday evening, an arrest warrant was issued Thursday, and Ogletree turned himself in Friday after the team practiced.

Until more information comes out about the incident, Ogletree will remain on the exempt list. It is likely the NFL will conduct its own investigation with potential action coming from the league depending on its findings.
