    Stuff like this, Winslow, Taylor, et al is the reason why the coaches want their players as close to them as possible in the offseason. Granted this was a domestic issue and could have happened any time, it's just mind-boggling how these guys get in trouble when they're not near a stadium...

    Jun 4, 5:07 PM EDT Colts Cornerback Nick Harper Arrested

    CARMEL, Ind. (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts cornerback Nick Harper was arrested Saturday for allegedly hitting his wife.

    Deputies were called to the couple's home north of Indianapolis in the morning, Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Carter said. Harper's wife, Danielle, was treated for an eye injury but wasn't taken to a hospital, Carter said.

    Harper, 30, was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and was being held Saturday at the Hamilton County Jail in Noblesville on $2,500 bond. Because of the nature of the charges, he cannot bond out of jail until after his initial court appearance Monday.

    "He'll be in jail all weekend," Carter said.

    Colts spokesman Craig Kelly said only, "We are aware of the matter."

    Harper, who has started 27 games the last two seasons, re-signed with the Colts in April. He had three interceptions last season and a team-high four in 2003.

    He became the second Colts player arrested within a week. Safety Mike Doss was arrested Sunday in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, on gun charges.
