    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.

    Spot on by some who said he was "on something" for trading a 1st for Richardson.

    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...

    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.

    Truth bomb.
