(USA Today Sports) It’s well known by now that Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on several counts of felony drug possession, as well as a DUI, but details of the arrest have been kept quiet until now. According to the Indianapolis Star, the arrest made on March 16th was tipped off by Irsay’s erratic driving. After being stopped by police, they reported that Irsay’s speech was slurred and he appeared to be intoxicated. He admitted to taking several prescription drugs, but refused to test for officers. Police conducted a search and found several bottles of prescription drugs and close to $30,000 in cash in the Toyota Highlander Irsay was rolling around in. Irsay agreed to take a breathalyzer, but those results were not released. The arresting officer told a supervisor that he believed Irsay was intoxicated on a substance other than alcohol. Irsay has since checked himself into a rehabilitation facility for help. His daughter Carlie is running the team in his absence, and represented the Colts  at the NFL owners meetings this last week. The arresting officer said he knew something was up when he spotted Irsay’s odd driving. “I observed a vehicle traveling east bound that appeared to be traveling at approximately 10 mph in a 35 mph zone,” the officer wrote in his report. “As I passed the vehicle I continued to observe it in my side view mirror. I observed the vehicle come to a complete stop on W. Main Street for no apparent reason. I turned my squad car around and began to drive to the vehicle’s location. As I was approaching the vehicle it began to slowly move east bound and came to another complete stop in the lane of travel for no apparent reason.” Irsay told officers that he was trying to find his house. “I asked him if he knew why I pulled him over,” the officer wrote in his report. “Irsay advised that he was trying to find his house and gets confused with what road it is located on.” When the officers pulled him out of his vehicle, Irsay could not complete tests due to his condition at the time. Officers had to hold him up to prevent him from falling over several times. Irsay was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday where he would likely be charged, however his attorney requested the hearing to be rescheduled as Irsay is in an out-of-state facility. The hearing has been postponed indefinitely. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters at the owners meetings that Irsay would be subject to discipline from the league office, but the legal system would play itself out first.   Follow us on Twitter Subscribe to our YouTube Channel
