Colts owner Jim Irsay was released from jail after a DUI arrest. Police also say that he was in possession of a controlled substance. The owner was arrested Sunday. Authorities pulled him over for 1. driving too slow and 2. stopping with failure of a turning signal.
Carmel (Ind.) Police Dept said, “multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles.”
Jim Irsay than admitted to being highly addicted to prescription drugs, and has seeked out previous professional help.
Due to the fact this is the Colts owners first offense,one of the policies states,
“Unless the available facts clearly indicate egregious circumstances, significant bodily harm or risk to third parties, or an immediate and substantial risk to the integrity and reputation of the NFL, a first offense generally will not result in discipline until there has been a disposition of the proceeding.”
The Colts also than responded by saying “this will not affect Jim Irsay’s 100% ownership of the team”.
Irsay spent 14 hours in custody, and is scheduled for a court hearing on March 26th.
