Colts Player Arrested On DWI Charge

Fili Moala Arrested Early Friday

A defensive tackle with the Indianapolis Colts was arrested early Friday, hours after playing in the team's final preseason game.

Fili Moala, 25, was pulled over downtown just after 2:30 a.m. driving at least 45 mph in a 25 mph zone, police said.

According to the police report, Moala smelled of alcohol and told the officer he had several drinks at a nearby club.

Police said Moala failed a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit.

He was arrested on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, public intoxication and speeding.

The Colts had not issued a comment on Moala's arrest Friday night.

Moala played extensively in Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He's a graduate of the University of Southern California and has played for two years in the NFL, according to the team roster.
