Colts owner Jim Irsay arrested for DUI, possession of controlled substance

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is in trouble with the law and apparently his sobriety.

Isray was arrested Sunday night on drunken driving chargers and possession of a controlled substance, according to the Indianapolis Star.

All NFL employees, including owners, are subject to the NFL personal-conduct policy. Irsay could be looking at hefty fines.

His bond was set at $22,500

"Actually working,sorry naysayers..I don't drink...haven't in over 15 years," Irsay wrote on Twitter last October. "I know when your unhappy or jealous it's easy to b mean-spirited."

Irsay acknowledged in 2002 having been addicted to pain killers.

"After several years of orthopedic operations and procedures, accompanied by long bouts of chronic pain, I became dependent on prescription pain medications," Irsay said in a statement 11 years ago. "This summer I sought professional help at a nationally recognized facility located outside Indiana. I have successfully dealt with my dependence and my chronic pain issues."
