Not a good sign when alcoholics drink. Usually turns out bad.



Colts owner Jim Irsay likely won't face jail time if found guilty
Quote:
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.
