Colts owner Jim Irsay may get his court date pushed back, but he’s expected to have to face charges while his team is playing this season.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Irsay’s court date on operating while intoxicated charges will likely come in late October or early November.
His attorney asked for a continuance, and the D.A. is not opposed to the move.
But before that one, he may have to appear at a conference involving the custody of two children who live with their mother in a million-dollar home Irsay paid for earlier this year.
The case was brought by the ex-husband of the mother, who said he was concerned about the safety of the children in Irsay’s presence.
“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. He added that “money does not buy morals or self-respect.”
The league has only said that Irsay was “under review,” as many wonder whether they’ll apply the same firm standards to an owner as they do players.
The silence from New York as to whether that’s true seems deafening, but the delay at least gives Roger Goodell time to consider how to punish one of his 32 bosses.
