Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was subpoenaed and must testify in a custody case involving the children of a woman who lives in one of his homes, reports the Indianapolis Star

Greg Martin subpoenaed Irsay after growing concerned about the effect the Colts owner has on Martin's children, who are 17 and 12. Martin has said that on occasion his children stay in the home that Martin's ex-wife, Jami Martin, lives in, which Irsay purchased for $1 million. When Irsay was arrested for impaired driving just blocks away from the home on March 16, Martin says his kids were staying there.

According to police records, on the night Irsay was charged with impaired driving officers had to continuously support him "in order to prevent him from falling over." Prosecutors also allege that he had oxycodone and/or hydrocodone in his system. 

More from the Star:

"As a father, I do not want my children subjected to this type of behavior and lifestyle," Greg Martin wrote in a letter to a Martinsville judge. He added that "money does not buy morals or self-respect."
