Rogers was taken to the Marion County Jail on suspicion of drunken driving. He had not been completely processed through the jail system as of 3:30 p.m., despite arriving at the jail around 5 a.m.

According to IUPUI Police records, an officer pulled Rogers over along West 16th Street because he was crossing the yellow line with his vehicle. His BAC was between .08 and .14 percent.

The Colts announced Monday afternoon they waived Rogers.

Rogers, 23, has a permanent address in Georgia. He has a storied past with disciplinary issues. He was kicked off Tennessee’s football roster after three failed drug tests.

The wide receiver also got negative attention after earning the Colts a 15-yard penalty during the preseason for a touchdown celebration. It prompted head coach Chuck Pagano to apologize to fans.
