DALLAS — A former Dallas Cowboys player, a current Indianapolis Colts player and a former TCU player were arrested early Sunday morning at a downtown Dallas club.

They have been identified as former Cowboys linebacker Stephen Hodge, Colts defensive end Jerry Hughes and former TCU defensive tackle Cory Grant.

The three athletes were taken into custody at The Vault nightclub, 1313 Main Street, for public intoxication at around 2:30 a.m.

Police say officers working nearby noticed a disturbance in the nearby nightclub and saw it continue outside on the sidewalk.  The men were taken to the City Detention Center.

All three players attended Texas Christian University. Sunday is Hodge's 24th birthday.

Hughes was drafted by the Colts in the first round of the NFL draft in 2010.

Hodge was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2009 but was injured his first two seasons and released by the team last November. He never appeared in a game.

As a TCU senior, Grant started all 13 games for the Horned Frogs last season and was named Second-team All-Mountain West Conference for the second year.
