Colts owner Jim Irsay faces four felony counts after being arrested late Sunday night on preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance and driving while intoxicated.



Irsay, who frequently interacts with fans on Twitter, wrote in an October 2013 tweet that, "I don't drink...haven't in over 15 years." He will be subject to league discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy, which applies to all personnel.

Now 54, Irsay acknowledged in 2002 that he had become dependent on painkillers after several orthopedic operations but said he had overcome the problem after undergoing treatment.
