Jim Irsay Arrested DUI

Colts Owner Jim Ursay DUI

Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts was arrested on suspicion of intoxicated driving and possession of a controlled substance, Sunday night.  The arrest took place in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Carmel. 

The billionaire has been in and out of rehab.  In 2002 he acknowledged that he had become dependent on painkillers after several years of orthopedic operations but said he had overcome the problem after undergoing treatment.Sources close to the business say otherwise.

It is likely that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will “discipline” Jim Irsay as part of the league’s personal conduct policy after the Colts Owner was arrested early this morning for DUI and possession of a controlled substance.

Forbes magazine has estimated Irsay’s net worth at $1.6 billion.

Irsay was 12 years old when his father, Robert Irsay, purchased the Baltimore Colts. After graduating from SMU in 1982 he joined the Colts’ professional staff. He was named Vice President and General Manager in 1984, one month after the Colts relocated from Baltimore, to Indianapolis. After his father suffered a stroke in 1995 Jim assumed day-to-day management with the role of Senior Executive Vice President, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer in April 1996. When his father died in 1997 Jim engaged in a legal battle with his stepmother over ownership of the team, but later became the youngest NFL team owner at that time at 37. He controls 100% of the franchise.

Ray Rice Video, Assault

The latest NFL news, clearly validates the comments made by Dale Henson in  a  Michael Sam commentary in which he showed his support Michael Sam,  a Missouri Tigers football star and 2014 NFL Draft prospect who openly announced that he is gay.

Watch Video, Dale Hansen 

Shocking video footage has emerged of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his seemingly unconscious fiancée Janay Palmer out of an elevator at  at the Revel Casino Atlantic City on Saturday.  A third person arrives and Rice lifts the woman up from a face-down position, at which point she seems to snap out of it, but she remains very groggy.

Rice’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein,  made reference to he incident in which he described it as  ‘very minor physical altercation.’The video doesn’t lend credence to the  that notion it was “minor,” and it appeared to be something far worse than a “misunderstanding.”

Rice and 26-year-old Palmer were both charged with simple assault-domestic violence.   Police in Atlantic City  say they have separate unreleased footage which proves both parties attacked each other.

On Monday, G.M. Ozzie Newsome said that Rice remains in the team’s plans for 2014.  But that was before the video surfaced.

Rice, played college football for Rutgers University, and was drafted by the Ravens in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

As of the 2013 season, he is ranked as the Ravens’ second all-time leading rusher behind Jamal Lewis (7,801) with 5,940 yards, and also second in attempts (1,273).

He is ranked second all-time for rushing touchdowns (37) and third for combined touchdowns (43) in Ravens history.
