Colts owner Irsay arrested
CARMEL, Ind. -- Colts owner Jim Irsay was jailed Monday on suspicion of intoxicated driving after police said he failed sobriety tests during a traffic stop and they found multiple prescription drugs inside his vehicle.

Irsay was stopped late Sunday after he was spotted driving slowly near his home in suburban Carmel, coming to a stop in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal. Police say the 54-year-old Irsay failed several roadside field sobriety tests before he was arrested, though details were not released.

Carmel police said the drugs found in Irsay's vehicle weren't associated with any prescription bottles found inside.

Irsay faces a preliminary misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, Hamilton County Sheriff's Department Deputy Bryant Orem said.

If convicted on the felony charges, Irsay could face of six months to three years in prison on each count. So-called Schedule IV drugs such as those with which Irsay was allegedly caught include drugs such as Xanax, Darvocet and Ambien, with a low risk for abuse or dependency, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Irsay was being held at the Hamilton County Jail under $22,500 bond.

In the article Irsay said he quit drinking 15 years ago?
Either he just started again or he's a liar???

Saw on the news last night that it wasn't alcohol, so he was mixing pain pills?
They also said he had $29,000 cash in the car. Must have been pocket change?
