Colt’s owner Jim Irsay arrested for DUI, possession of controlled substance

As readers of this blog know, it is not unusual for NFL players to get arrested for DUI.  We have even had team executives get arrested.  Now, an owner.  From USA Today:

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay faces four felony counts after being arrested Sunday night by Carmel police on preliminary charges of driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance, police said.

Irsay drove at a slow rate of speed, stopped in the roadway and failed to signal a turn before police stopped him, Lt. Joe Bickel of the Carmel Police Department said in a release.

“During the course of the investigation, Irsay subsequently failed several roadside field sobriety tests,” Bickel said.

In an inventory of Irsay’s vehicle, “multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles,” police said. “These Schedule IV prescription drugs were not associated with any prescription bottles found in the vehicle.”

Irsay faces four counts of felony possession of controlled substances.
