Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has been released from jail after being brought in on charges of DUI and possession of controlled substances, according to the Indianapolis Star.
Irsay was pulled over in Carmel, Indiana on Sunday night shortly before midnight and failed several sobriety field tests, but the police report does not indicate that alcohol was involved. The Star reports the Colts' owner was found in possession of multiple schedule IV prescription drugs in non-matching prescription bottles, according to Lt. Joe Bickel of the Carmel Police Department.
Irsay faces four preliminary counts of felony possession of controlled substances, Bickel said. The charges are Class D felonies, all of which carry penalties of six months to three years in jail. He also faces a preliminary misdemeanor charge of operating while intoxicated.An NFL spokesman told the Indianapolis Star that the incident would be handled according to the league's conduct policy.
