Former Colt 'Chukie' Nwokorie Arrested on Sex Charges

Former Indianapolis Colts player Chijioke "Chukie" Nwokorie, 33, faces sexual assault charges.

He was arrested Wednesday after allegedly assaulting a woman. She is described as a longtime friend from Philadelphia.

The victim says she was sexually assaulted by Nwokorie Aug. 2 after the two left a Broad Ripple bar.

She told IMPD that she was assaulted both in Nwokorie's car and his home.

He was a defensive back for the Colts from 1999 to 2002. He also played for Green Bay, and he signed to play for Denver, but was injured before he could play.

Nwokorie played ball for Purdue from 1995 to 1998.

He faces two felony charges for allegedly criminal deviate conduct and sexual battery.

Today, he is free on bond, but is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
