Indianapolis, IN, United States (4E Sports) – Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has entered a guilty plea Tuesday to one misdemeanor charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) in a case that stemmed from his March 16 arrest.
After the guilty plea, Irsay received one year’s probation during which he will undergo drug testing. He had previously pled not guilty to two counts of the offense.
According to evidence gathered during his arrest, Irsay had the painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone in his system.
Police records also show that officers “continuously had to support Irsay in order to prevent him from falling over.”
With a plea agreement reached, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can now discipline Irsay.
“He is seeking help and he’s done that voluntarily,” Goodell said in March, a week after Irsay’s arrest. “Obviously any policies or laws that are broken, whether they are commissioner, player or coach, those are subject to discipline.”
