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.

How does someone worth $1.6 billion not have someone who can drive him? Unreal...

Kravitz: Jim Irsay fighting for his life, needs help
Quote:
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.

Default Re: Jim Irsay arrested on DUI

After watching the NFL go on about the biggest concern here is Irsay himself, I think they are remiss in not pointing out a bigger concern: potential victims of this drunk driver. The guy is a selfish azz driving around drunk, and if wants to kill himself, have at fella but just don't take anyone else with you, or injure them. Hey go get blasted, but keep out from behind the wheel.

I would image the commish knew this day was coming. You don't keep secrets like that, and it's fairly obvious his drug use wasn't a secret at all.

No point in fining him, what's in a 500,000 K fine for him, just chump change.
Make him pick up trash for 6 months or a year in one of those orange jump suits,
maybe a little humiliation would serve as a deterrent ? Not that I expect the league to do that to him.

Twitter comments last night were infuriating me. "Oh poor Irsay needs our support" "we need to stand beside Irsay!"

You know what? **** that! This spoiled brat billionaire drove drunk with illegal medications in his car and put lots of innocent people at risk. Throw the damn book at him

It's always ironic for me when NFL fans get indignant over drunk driving and three quarters of the folks leaving the stadiums, sports bars and friends houses each week couldn't pass a breathalyzer. Instead of condemned they get a police escort from the stadiums.

Inane response. They had money to go to the game. And they have the ability to not get drunk knowing they are driving home. That's free last I checked.

They should have the book thrown at them as well. Fact is though Irsay will get off with a slap on the wrist and a "Poor poor Jim" from the talking heads.
