Jim Irsay Arrested DUI

Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts was arrested on suspicion of intoxicated driving and possession of a controlled substance, Sunday night.  The arrest took place in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Carmel. 

The billionaire has been in and out of rehab.  In 2002 he acknowledged that he had become dependent on painkillers after several years of orthopedic operations but said he had overcome the problem after undergoing treatment.Sources close to the business say otherwise.

It is likely that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will “discipline” Jim Irsay as part of the league’s personal conduct policy after the Colts Owner was arrested early this morning for DUI and possession of a controlled substance.

Forbes magazine has estimated Irsay’s net worth at $1.6 billion.

Irsay was 12 years old when his father, Robert Irsay, purchased the Baltimore Colts. After graduating from SMU in 1982 he joined the Colts’ professional staff. He was named Vice President and General Manager in 1984, one month after the Colts relocated from Baltimore, to Indianapolis. After his father suffered a stroke in 1995 Jim assumed day-to-day management with the role of Senior Executive Vice President, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer in April 1996. When his father died in 1997 Jim engaged in a legal battle with his stepmother over ownership of the team, but later became the youngest NFL team owner at that time at 37. He controls 100% of the franchise.

Wayne has played his entire  11 year NFL career with the Colts.

According to sources  at the Indystar. com …after being  “stung by the loss of Pierre Garcon earlier, the Colts refused to lose their No. 1 receiver, Wayne, along with No. 2 Garcon.
