ONE MORE SAD LOSS –
May 11, 2021 – In the April 12 post, Colt discussed the fallout from a sexual misconduct allegation he faced while at the University of Colorado (where he played football before transferring to Hawaii), as well as the aftermath of a near-fatal car accident that family and friends believe led to a series of legal troubles down the line, including multiple arrests for driving under the influence.
“I’ve been through a lot in my life,” Colt captioned a photo of him from a 2007 ESPN cover story. “I was a convicted felon for a crime I never committed, (passed polygraph and all). I captured every dream I had as a child. I was drafted into the league only to have 2 knee and 2 hip surgeries.” “I reached my 3rd year in the NFL,” he went on, “only to awake from a coma with traumatic brain injury as a passenger in a car accident. I battled drug and alcohol abuse, and eventually developed blood clots years after the car accident. I spent 9 months in the hospital and for the last 2 1/2 years have been trying to learn how to walk again with a broken heart.”
