Jim Irsay charged with four felony counts of possession
Colts owner Jim Irsay remains in jail after this morning’s arrest, and the charges continue to mount.
According to Kristine Guerra of the Indianapolis Star, Irsay was charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, after police found several prescription drugs in pill bottles in Irsay’s car.
Police said they found Schedule IV prescription drugs in his car. Schedule IV drugs are on the lower end of the substance abuse spectrum, according to the DEA’s guidelines, and includes sleep medications and Xanax among others.
Irsay admitted in 2002 an addiction to prescription painkillers, and some within the organization have worried about his recent behavior.
