Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay failed multiple sobriety tests after being pulled over early this morning in suburban Indianapolis and faces four felony counts- including Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence and Possession of a Controlled Substance. He is being held on a $22,500 bond and is set to face a judge early Monday afternoon.
"During the course of the investigation, Irsay subsequently failed several roadside field sobriety tests," Carmel (IN) police Lt. Joe Bickel said in a release.
While searching Irsay's vehicle, "multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles. These Schedule IV prescription drugs were not associated with any prescription bottles found in the vehicle," according to the police.
The Colts released the standard statement Monday morning:
"We are gathering information at this time regarding last night's incident involving Jim Irsay. The team will issue additional statements when the facts are sorted and we are aware of the next steps to this process.
"Many fans have reached out to express their concern and we appreciate their support."
The NFL issued a one sentence statement relaying that Irsay "will be subject to discipline."
