Colts owner Jim Irsay could face court dates during NFL season

Tuesday August 19th, 2014

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay could face court dates for two separate cases during the upcoming NFL season, according to a report from The Indianapolis Star.

Irsay's court date for his trial on operating while intoxicated charges is likely to be in October or November, while a court date for his case involving the custody of two children who live with their mother in a home Irsay paid for could come before then.

A bench trial for the OWI case was set for Aug. 28 before Irsay's request for a delay, which was filed by his lawyers Monday and not opposed by a prosecutor. An attorneys' conference for the custody case is set for Sept. 2.
