Further details emerge in Andrew Ogletree’s arrest

Indianapolis Colts tight end Andrew Ogletree was arrested Friday afternoon and faces two charges of domestic battery, both of which are felonies in the state of Indiana.

According to state records, Ogletree was charged with “domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury” and “domestic battery committed in physical presence of a child less than 16, knowing child present and might be able to see/hear.”

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.

To little surprise, Ogletree is not expected to be active when the Colts host the Las Vegas Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. There is a chance he goes on the Commissioner Exempt List, which is essentially paid leave.

As of Saturday morning, Ogletree remained in custody of the police and no bond has been set for his release.
