Colts’ Irsay seeks delay of trial on DWI charges
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay wants to delay his trial on two misdemeanor charges stemming from a March traffic stop.
The Indianapolis Star reports an attorney for Irsay filed the request for the continuance Monday. His trial had been scheduled for Aug. 28.
Irsay was arrested March 16 near his home in suburban Carmel after he was spotted driving slowly, stopping in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal. Officers said he had trouble reciting the alphabet and failed other field sobriety tests.
A police report said various prescription drugs were found in his vehicle, along with more than $29,000 in cash.
Irsay was charged with driving while intoxicated and driving with a Schedule I or II controlled substance in his body.
