HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. – Former Indianapolis Colts player Robert Mathis was charged with an OWI following his arrest in mid-October when Carmel Police Officers pulled over his vehicle.

Mathis was stopped by police for driving in the wrong direction on a one-way and failing to signal a turn near the area of Bishop Circle and Windemere Boulevard.

A preliminary breath test at the scene returned with a result of .043 BAC. A chemical test administered at the Carmel Police Department registered .052 BAC, according to the police report.

Though Mathis’ BAC level was below the .08 BAC, Carmel officers said other factors contributed to the charge.

Mathis told the arresting officer he had one shot of Cognac and had taken a sleeping aid. He later told police he had also taken two shots of Crown Royal, according to the police report.
