When Colts owner Jim Irsay was pulled over on March 16, police thought he was under the influence, and Irsay refused a blood test. As a result, Irsay’s driver’s license has been suspended.
The Indianapolis Star reports that Irsay’s license was suspended last week for one year, through May 27, 2015.
Under Indiana law, a one-year license suspension is mandated for anyone who refuses to submit to a drug test. Obviously, Irsay can afford to have a full-time chauffeur, so a one-year license suspension won’t affect him the way it would affect most people, but he’s getting the same punishment that drivers typically get for refusing to take a blood test.
Irsay is facing two misdemeanor counts of impaired driving. His next court date is June 19.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has confirmed that Irsay is subject to league discipline, but there’s no word yet on what that discipline will entail, or when it will be handed down.
