Colts owner Jim Irsay back with team after serving suspension
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is back with the team after serving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
Irsay pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he was stopped by police in March for erratic driving. Police found more than $29,000 in cash and bottles containing prescription drugs in the vehicle Irsay was driving.
He was sentenced to one year of probation and had his drivers license revoked for one year and 40 days. The NFL also fined him $500,000 and told him to stay away from team functions and social media.
Irsay’s daughter, Carlie Irsay-Gordon, took control of the team while he was away.
"We have ten days to heal up and the best thing is that we get our boss back, we get our owner back," Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said, according to the Indianapolis Star. "We get the guy that is leading this whole thing so it is going to be huge. He has been with us in spirit so to speak for the past six games, but I can't wait to have him in that locker room with us again and have him back in the building and grinding away with him."
