How Ironic: Indianapolis Colts Owner Jim Irsay Arrested For DUI (And It’s Not Just Alcohol)
Indianapolis Colts own Jim Irsay is known for being one of the most outspoken owners in the NFL. Using Twitter often to update the fans on any changes, and feeling he might have.
Now, the owner is in trouble with the law. And its not because he was drinking to much.
The Associated Press is reporting that Irsay was arrested Sunday night for ““operating while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.”
This story will get very interesting in the next coming weeks as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been known to have no mercy in these kind of incidents with fines and suspensions almost a sure thing when a player makes this kind of decision.
The thing is…Goodell works for the owners. This should be an interesting dynamic.
Also, what controlled substance was found in Irsay’s car? I’m assuming marijuana because of the charges, which also brings another debate in the realm of football and society at this point in time.
Bond has been set at $22,500 for the owner, which should be chump change for someone worth $1.6 billion.
