From his Wikipedia page:

On March 17, 2014, Irsay was arrested on DUI and drug possession charges in Carmel, Indiana. He fought the law and the law won.

Good he didn't kill anyone.

Wife filed for divorce in November. Suspected of drunk tweeting around then. Admitted he had become addicted to pain killers in 2002 when he was suspected of prescription drug fraud but not charged. Irsay's name surfaced in 1995 in an Indianapolis police drug investigation of Dickerson, the station reported. It said a prescription drug investigator met twice with Irsay, who was encouraged to seek help. Irsay suffered overdoses from prescription drugs in April 2000, August 2000 and the fall of 2001, according to the report.

While alcoholics are doing it one day at a time, addiction is outside doing push-ups.


Update: According to the Indianapolis Star's Kristine Guerra, police found "several" bottles of Schedule IV prescription drugs in Irsay's car. He's been charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated.

Kravitz: Jim Irsay fighting for his life, needs help (http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/kravitz/2014/03/17/kravitz-irsay-fighting-for-his-life-needs-help/6523925/)
In a twisted way, Jim Irsay's friends have been praying for this day. They've been praying for the day when he'd reach rock bottom and be forced to come to terms with a drug problem that he's battled for some time.

"He's a sick, sick man,'' one source told me. "He desperately needs help.''

There was a sad inevitability to what happened Sunday night in Carmel. Irsay faces four felony counts after being arrested on preliminary charges of driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance. For years, Colts insiders have known that Irsay was struggling again with drugs. For years, they fought to get him into rehabilitation. At the very least, they fought to get him a driver in the hopes of keeping away from getting behind the wheel.

The Colts have been cleaning up Irsay's messes for years now. Time and again, Irsay dismissed the concerns of his close friends and confidantes, even if his increasingly gaunt physical appearance sent up red flags throughout the community.

I asked him two months ago about his weight loss, which has brought him from 235 pounds to 165 pounds, and he insisted that the doctors wanted him to lose weight to keep the strain off his troublesome back and hip.

I suspected otherwise. Those of us who are around Irsay on a semi-regular basis suspected otherwise for a very long time.

So why didn't you write it?

That's a fair question. But it's much like the baseball players during the steroid era. Suspicions cannot be the basis for news stories. My feeling all along has been, "Unless he gets arrested for drugs, or acts erratically in a public setting while obviously under the influence, it will remain nothing more than an educated guess.''

Now he's been arrested. The game has changed.

He has two big problems, besides the obvious drug issue: He's crazy rich and he has lots of free time. That is a dangerous cocktail for a man with a genetic predisposition to substance abuse.

That doesn't make him a bad man, just a troubled one, one who has been in and out of rehab on multiple occasions, one who needs to get himself some help again if he wants to be alive for the Colts next Super Bowl.
...
Based on several conversations with team officials and friends, this is a man fighting for his life.

Get some help, James. Please, get some help.

Why dont they choose a person to drive that wont drink at the game? Why dont they consume just a few beverages instead of getting smashed? Why dont they avoid drinking at all if they cant handle themselves properly?

The average ticket price at Reliant is $86. Assuming each person spends a generous $40 per in addition the gross is around $9.1 mil. They players get paid $8.125 mil per game. As you say, game days are not the huge profit makers many think.

Colts owner Jim Irsay likely won't face jail time if found guilty (http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2014/03/17/-colts-owner-jim-irsay-arrested-on-dui-charge/6515267/)
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay... was preliminarily charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor charge of operating while intoxicated.
...
Irsay, driving a late-model Toyota Highlander, was arrested after he was stopped by Carmel police about 11:40 p.m. Sunday in the 13000 block of Horseferry Road...

Multiple Schedule IV prescription drugs were found in pill bottles in Irsay's vehicle, the statement said, but they were not associated with any prescription bottles found in the vehicle.

Schedule IV drugs, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration website, have low potential for abuse and low risk of dependence. Examples include Xanax, Soma, Darvon, Darvocet, Valium, Ativan, Talwin and Ambien.

The four preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance that Irsay faces are Class D felonies, each punishable by up to three years in prison. Operating while intoxicated is a misdemeanor. The police statement did not indicate that alcohol was involved.
...

Tompkins said the arrest appears to be Irsay's first driving while intoxicated offense, so if he is [charged]/convicted, Irsay can expect to lose his license for a period of 30 days to six months. If Irsay refused to submit to a blood test requested by police, Tompkins said, he could lose his license for a year.

In addition, Tompkins said, Irsay likely would be required to serve one year of probation, submit to random drug testing and attend drug or alcohol awareness classes. He also would be required to attend a victim impact panel, where he would hear graphic stories about the real-life consequences of driving while impaired.

Just wondering if your reaction would be the same if it had been a family member or close friend who'd made such a horrible combination of decisions.

He's going to go through the process and we will see but if they have the evidence he is not going to get off scott free. 1st time offenders do not generally get jail time. They get probation.

As for the NFL, first time offenders don't get suspended generally so I am not sure what you are looking for in "same exact standards." Marcus Coleman for example was not suspended for his DUI in Houston. When he got another in Dallas he was suspended for four games.

How is he defending? Just telling it like it is. Irsay will have to pay his debt to society just like everyone else. Courts don't eff around with DWI, but first offense without collateral damage usually involves probation, fines, and meeting other requirements. If they have drug courts in Indy, he may be diverted into one of those and have a Judge sitting on top of his butt making sure he toes the line. We'll see about the other potential charges.

As an owner I'd expect he'll get outsized penalties from Goddell based on his history and "damage to the shield". Irsay should personally double whatever the league decides, imo.

DOUBLE STANDARD (http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/69571904/jim-irsay-dwi-arrest-checking-into-rehab-peter-king-columns)
The problem is that such sympathy is rarely extended toward NFL players, who are either condemned for their thoughtless actions or ignored as humans entirely, analyzed solely through the lens of on-field decisions.

Peter King, one of the most prolific and respected voices in the NFL media, is a perfect example of this double standard. In his weekly Tuesday column, King devoted several paragraphs to detailing Irsay's passion for the Colts and, generally, being an all-around caring samaritan:

The first step here will be for Irsay to deal with the law, and to get the help he needs. Irsay loves being around his team. He loves being an owner. He loves the life, and what he can do for people because of that life. For goodness sakes, he tweets transactions. He gives out tickets in Twitter contests. When a former Colts beat writer, Len Pasquarelli, was ready to be discharged from a Phoenix hospital after bypass surgery while covering the Super Bowl in 2008, Irsay sent word that he wanted to ferry Pasquarelli home to Atlanta on his private plane, with a nurse on board. On Monday, Pasquarelli wrote about that for a story on his site, pickthedraft.com, just to show people that Irsay is a big-hearted guy who, obviously, has some demons.

This "get the help he needs" sentiment was a common one in The Star's roundup, but is rarely extended to players busted for DUIs or DWIs. Last September, Aldon Smith was arrested on DUI charges -- his second DUI charge in a year -- blowing twice the legal limit at 7 a.m. on a Thursday morning. Despite Smith announcing he would check himself into a rehab facility, King wrote nothing even approaching his compassion for Irsay, discussing the entire issue through the dehumanizing and paternalistic lens of the 49ers' personnel department:

I would not have played Smith Sunday were it my decision. I wouldn't have abandoned him and let him go off to get in more trouble than he already was in. He would have been with the team all weekend -- at Saturday meetings, on the sideline Sunday -- but there are some things that are just more important than playing in a football game. If it sends the wrong message to sit a guy and pay him $230,000, so be it. I just don't think it's right to let him play.

One other thing: The next big issue on Roger Goodell's agenda -- and on DeMaurice Smith's as well -- has to be tougher penalties on DUIs. This isn't a partisan issue. It's potentially a life-and-death one, for the drivers and the innocents in their way.

In February of 2010, Vincent Jackson pleaded guilty to his second DUI charge since coming into the NFL. Peter King's reaction...

Also, it's easy to bash this guy because he is a billionaire. Yes, he has access to resources most of us do not have, but at the end of the day, the guy is human and has an addiction he's been fighting for years. Addiction is not classist; it does not just strike poor people.

According to The Star, Irsay, through slurred speech, admitted to taking several medications but refused to submit to a blood test.

Police found $29,029 in cash and a number of prescription medication bottles in the Toyota Highlander that Irsay was driving in an upscale area of the suburb north of Indianapolis. The report said that Irsay was driving erratically, travelling at about 10 miles an hour in a 35 mph zone, then came to a complete stop for no apparent reason.

Jim Irsay -- like father, like son? (http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10718294/jim-irsay-father-son)
Colts' owner was sensitive to his father's substance-abuse issues.
..Jim Thompson, owner of Daddy Jack's, who notes that Irsay had visited the establishment more lately.

"I knew his father. He used to come in a lot. I never saw him sober. I'd go to shake his hand, and he'd grab my hand and pull me over the table and knock over glasses, and I was like, 'Oh my God.' He was not really that nice of a man, to tell you the truth. Jimmy's a lot nicer than his dad. I was expecting the worst, and getting to know Jimmy kind of changed my mind on the family. And they have been very good for this community."

Nasty stories abound about the late Robert Irsay, the liquor he consumed, the people he infuriated, the hearts he broke in 1984 when he whisked the Colts out of Baltimore in a caravan of Mayflower trucks in the dead of the night and relocated the team to Indianapolis. But Jim Irsay was damned if he'd be that guy. He learned from his father's mistakes. He spent a lifetime vowing to be kind and rational, sharp and football-savvy. He'd be one of the NFL's best owners instead of the worst...

Carlie Irsay-Gordon, 33, is leading the way in Indy (http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/4935/irsay-gordon-the-person-leading-the-way-in-indy)
"She'll do well. She's a sharp business person," former Colts assistant and current Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "She's very much like her father, she has great personality, she's extremely bright, she has a good feeling for people. I've worked for a bunch of owners, and Jim Irsay -- he talks about faith, family and football. It's real. And she has that same mindset."

Irsay-Gordon joins principle owners Martha Ford, widow of the late Detroit Lions owner Bill Ford, Sr., and Virginia McCaskey of the Chicago Bears, as the only females running NFL franchises...

Irsay has to get clean, reach to others (http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/4941/irsay-has-to-get-clean-and-reach-to-others)
Irsay has the money (he's worth an estimated $1.6 billion) to make a difference for not only himself but for others. As he has proven, substance addiction is not easy to overcome. He has battled pain pill addiction long before his latest arrest. Once clean -- hopefully sooner than later -- Irsay and his outgoing personality can become a public figure in helping those who have a daily struggle of drug and alcohol addiction. Since 2003, there have been more overdoses involving painkillers than heroin and cocaine combined, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...

More loss of life...
A sports law and ethics expert, as well as a source familiar with NFL operations, told The Indianapolis Star that the policy could lead Goodell to also ask about Irsay's relationship and associations outside of the Colts, including with an Indianapolis woman with a drug history of her own — a woman who died of a suspected drug overdose two weeks before Irsay's arrest. Her body was found in a $139,500 townhouse Irsay gave her last August.
...

Like Irsay, Kimberly Wundrum, 42, had a history of drug problems before she died March 1.

Wundrum's sister, Rhonda Wundrum, who has worked as Irsay's personal masseuse, said in an email her sister and Irsay were "former friends" but did not elaborate. A former neighbor of Kimberly Wundrum told The Star that Irsay sometimes visited Kimberly Wundrum, and that she once introduced the team owner to him.

"I cannot speak for them, and Kim cannot speak for herself," Rhonda Wundrum said. "My sister was a kind, loving and gentle person who had a long struggle, and her attempts to rise above her struggles were not successful."

Kimberly Wundrum was arrested twice on drug charges in the seven months before her death. She was arrested Aug. 30 in Miami County, Ohio, on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and felony drug possession. Police found her with 18 "nonprescribed Vicodin ... and 0.6 grams of crushed, nonprescribed Adderall."

On Jan. 4, she was arrested in Boone County on charges of possession of a controlled substance, operating a vehicle while intoxicated with drugs in her system and criminal recklessness after she was stopped driving the wrong way on I-65 and almost hitting a police car.

Her drug-related ties go back years. While she was married to an attorney in Florida, he pleaded guilty in 1997 to federal tax charges and was sentenced to 15 months in prison for failing to report $364,000 in transactions he conducted for a man identified in court documents as a drug dealer. They were divorced in 2003, and he died in 2005 of a drug overdose.

While investigating the scene of Kimberly Wundrum's death, a police report lists evidence gathered at the scene as an "orange plate w/white powder, straw, razor." They also found photographs of Irsay in the home of the former homecoming queen candidate at Brownsburg High School in 1990.
