Indianapolis - Metro police arrested a former Purdue football player at a downtown bar early Sunday.

Anthony Spencer, 24, was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct after being thrown out of Have A Nice Day Cafe around 3 a.m. Sunday. Police say Spencer, who is from Fort Wayne and currently plays defensive end for the Dallas Cowboys, tried to give the bar money to stay open later, along with another man, identified as Matthew Millhouse.

Police say Spencer then threw punches at bouncers, pounded on exit doors and shouted at bar staff. They say he and Millhouse also argued with police officers who told them to leave.

Spencer was drafted out of Purdue in 2007.
