Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on Sunday night. The 54-year-old was reportedly charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.
According to WISH TV in Indianpolis, Irsay was taken into custody just before midnight. His bond was set for $22,500.
It is unclear what substance Irsay was found to be in possession of. Irsay seems to always tweet like he’s hammered, though he has denied in the past that he drinks at all.
