John Newcomb Boyett is an American football safety who is a free agent. Boyett played college football for the Oregon Ducks. He was selected by the Indianapolis Colts during the sixth round in the 2013 NFL draft. He signed with the Colts on May 9, and was placed on the non-football injury list on July 23, 2013. On September 3, 2013, he was released by the Colts after being arrested the day prior for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement. Boyett tried to enter a bar and was turned away for being already intoxicated. After refusing to leave, the police were called and he reportedly threatened officers and said "You can’t arrest me, I’m a Colts player" after attempting to flee. Boyett issued an apology on September 4.
