Colts owner Irsay seeks treatment following DWI arrest

INDIANAPOLIS – Jim Irsay’s family says the Indianapolis Colts owner has placed himself in health care treatment following his arrest on preliminary charges of driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.

A three-sentence statement released Tuesday said Irsay on Monday had “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.”

Irsay was arrested early Monday following a traffic stop in which police said he failed sobriety tests and had multiple prescription drugs inside his vehicle.

Colts spokesman Avis Roper released the statement. He said the statement came from Irsay’s family and that he has no further information.
