A father who does not want his children exposed to Colts owner Jim Irsay has successfully requested that a judge order Irsay to testify in a custody hearing.
The Indianapolis Star reports that Irsay has been ordered to testify in a case involving the children of a woman who lives in a home owned by Irsay. The woman’s ex-husband believes Irsay is a substance abuser who should not be around his children.
“As a father, I do not want my children subjected to this type of behavior and lifestyle,” Greg Martin wrote in a letter to the court, adding that “money does not buy morals or self-respect.”
Irsay was arrested and is still facing charges of impaired driving in connection with an incident on March 16, and Martin says that his children were with his ex-wife at the time, in the home that Irsay owns, just blocks away from where Irsay was arrested.
Martin says Irsay’s testimony “will shed light on the atmosphere my children are living in.” Martin also wants Irsay’s medical records “to verify any addictions that the minor children would be subjected to while being around Mr. Irsay.”
No date has been set for Irsay’s testimony.
