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.


Clever since he is always quoting rock songs

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:
Quote:
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.

According to the CBA, even owners are subject to discipline. Let's see it in action, though.

Great point. I agree.

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.

It is easier sometimes to hate someone the more money the have but the truth is a lot of people that drive drunk could actual get a cab vs irsay having someone on staff to drive him

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.
Irsays got 29 large on him just driving around his neighborhood, and me, I take maybe 3 or 4 hundred bucks cold cash with me when I go to Vegas for a weekend. Obviously, total piker here.

For a billionaire 29k in cash isn't a big deal. For personal reference 300-400 for weekend Vegas run seems a bit weak to me

Jim Irsay -- like father, like son?
Colts' owner was sensitive to his father's substance-abuse issues.
Quote:
..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
Quote:
"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
Quote:
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...
