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.
