Facing criminal charges, including driving under the influence and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is checking himself into a drug rehab treatment facility.
Irsay was arrested Monday and charged and is now free on bail. He has a March 26 court date.
Irsay went to rehab in 2002 and has a history of drug problems.
"Yesterday, Jim Irsay took the first step toward regaining good health," the Colts announced in a statement. "He voluntarily checked into a highly-respected health care facility and is committed to undergoing the treatment and care necessary to help him meet his challenges head-on. Jim, the Irsay family, and the Colts organization are all deeply appreciative of the incredible outpouring of support and compassion from our fans and the Indiana community"
