NFL owner, Jim Irsay, has checked himself into a rehab center after an arrest last Monday.
The Indianapolis Colts owner was arrested in Carmel, Indiana, after being pulled over for driving to slow, stopping in the middle of the road and failing to signal a turn. After he failed several field-sobriety tests, a search of Irsay’s vehicle uncovered multiple prescription drugs in pill bottles, according to police reports.
The Colts released a statement saying,
esterday, Jim Irsay took the first step toward regaining good health,” according to a Colts’ statement. “He voluntarily checked into a highly-respected health care facility and is committed to undergoing the treatment and care necessary to help him meet his challenges head-on. Jim, the Irsay family, and the Colts organization are all deeply appreciative of the incredible outpouring of support and compassion from our fans and the Indiana community.”
Irsay also tweeted a message of thanks saying, “Deepest thx to family, friends, fans, colleagues for the messages of support, thoughts and prayers. Impossible to tell u how much this means”
Irsay is scheduled to appear in court next week.
