Colts owner Jim Irsay and Indianapolis prosecutors have reached an agreement on a plea deal related to Irsay’s impaired driving arrest.
The prosecutor’s office confirmed to the Indianapolis Star that Irsay, who previously pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges, will change his plea next week.
“I can confirm that Mr. Irsay’s case has been set for a change of plea hearing on Tuesday, September 2nd at 11:00 a.m. in Hamilton Superior Court IV,” Andre Miksha, a spokesman for the Hamilton County prosecutor said. “I cannot provide any details of — or even verify the existence of — an agreement unless and until one would be tendered to the Court at such a hearing.”
Prosecutors say that when Irsay was pulled over on March 16, he had “oxycodone and/or hydrocodone” in his system and officers “continuously had to support Irsay in order to prevent him from falling over.”
Irsay is expected to face league discipline, but such discipline has not yet been announced.
