INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts running back Dominic Rhodes faces a drunken driving charge after state troopers arrested him Tuesday.

Rhodes, 28, was pulled over about 3 a.m. driving a truck 81 mph in a 55-mph zone on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis' far northwest side, Indiana State Police spokesman 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said.

"It was a normal, run-of-the-mill drunk driving arrest," Bursten said.

Rhodes was cooperative with the state troopers who arrested him, police said.

Rhodes was still being processed at the Marion County arrestee processing center Tuesday morning.

Colts spokesman Craig Kelley said the team did not have any immediate comment on the arrest.

Rhodes has been in trouble with the law before. Following a 2002 domestic disturbance at his home, Rhodes pleaded not guilty in Marion Superior Court to misdemeanor charges of battery and domestic battery. Latrina Moore, who lived with Rhodes at the time and is the mother of a child with Rhodes, said Rhodes hit her and shoved her to the floor after she confronted him about other women calling their home, prosecutors said at the time.

Under an agreement with prosecutors in that case, Rhodes was charged with domestic battery but avoided prosecution. Instead, Rhodes was placed in a diversionary program and underwent mental health counseling.

The Associated Press left messages Tuesday seeking comment from Rhodes' attorney in that case, Jim Voyles, and with Rhodes' agent Michael McCartney.

Rhodes delivered an MVP-like performance in Super Bowl XLI, rushing for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 29-17 victory over the Bears. He started all 16 regular-season games in 2006, rushing for 641 yards and five touchdowns.

Rhodes was Edgerrin James' backup since 2001 and had a chance to become the Colts featured back in 2006 but instead shared the job with rookie Joseph Addai.

The six-year veteran will become an unrestricted free agent and has rushed for 2,274 yards in his career.

I related news, Cincinnatti Bengals have shown much interest in trading for Rhodes as part of their new Character counts campaign!

As I said in another thread on this same topic:

This is an exceprt from the article ( http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/IND/10009680 )

"Rhodes has been in trouble with the law before. Following a 2002 domestic disturbance at his home, Rhodes pleaded innocent in Marion Superior Court to misdemeanor charges of battery and domestic battery. Latrina Moore, who lived with Rhodes at the time and is the mother of a child with Rhodes, said Rhodes hit her and shoved her to the floor after she confronted him about other women calling their home, prosecutors said at the time.

Under an agreement with prosecutors in that case, Rhodes was charged with domestic battery but avoided prosecution. Instead, Rhodes was placed in a diversionary program and underwent mental health counseling. "

Battery/Domestic Violence, mental health counseling, and now DUI?

Not sure about you, but I am seeing the beginning of a trend for this individual. Sure, I would love to see what he could do for us, but the history is something I could do without on our team.

Preach said it right, "let's go for Michael Bush" ....and avoid bad Bengal-oid controversy.
