What a strange and tragic story for Zurlon Tipton, the former Colts running back and special teams member. Tipton died Tuesday from a gunshot wound after one his guns was accidentally discharged. He was just 26 years old.
In a stunning and bizarre turn of events, the Indianapolis Colts did the exact opposite of what everyone thought, or at least hoped they would do, signing both Head Coach Chuck Pagano and General Manager Ryan Grigson to contract extensions instead of showing them the door.
The 54-year-old, outspoken, Twitter-loving owner was arrested around 3AM Monday morning in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel, Indiana and has been booked on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and four counts of possession of a controlled substance, each a Class D Felony.
Colts fans in the city of Indianapolis who made the decision not to buy tickets for Saturday's home playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs will for sure be able to watch the game from the comfort of their recliner thanks to supermarket chain, Meijer who saved the day at the last minute by buying the remaining 1,200 tickets. What's more impressive is what they intend to do with them.
