Troubled Jim Irsay expresses thanks for support

Troubled Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay thanks everyone who's shown him support since he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and four felony counts of possesion of a controlled substance.

"Deepest thx to family, friends, fans, colleagues for the messages of support, thoughts and prayers," Irsay wrote on Twitter."Impossible to tell u how much this means."

He was released from jail this afternoon on $22,500 bond.

"The Club continues to fully support Mr. Irsay but must refrain from commenting further at least until formal charges have been filed," the Colts said in a statement. "A hearing is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday, March 26."
