I guess if you’re super rich like Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, perhaps holding onto $29K on an everyday basis is like you and I holding a couple hundred in our wallets.
The Indianapolis Star provided some details of Irsay’s March 16th arrest.
According to the report, Irsay admitted to taking several prescription pills the night he was pulled over.
Per ESPN: ‘ Police found $29,029 in cash and a number of prescription medication bottles in the Toyota Highlander that Irsay was driving in an upscale area of the suburb north of Indianapolis. The report said that Irsay was driving erratically, travelling at about 10 miles an hour in a 35 mph zone, then came to a complete stop for no apparent reason.
After undergoing sobriety tests and nearly falling repeatedly, he was eventually handcuffed and arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and four counts of possession of a controlled substance. He has not been formally charged and is undergoing treatment at an out-of-state health-care facility. ‘
Irsay checked himself into a rehab facility days after the incident, while his daughter, Carlie Irsay-Gordon, has taken over as the principal authority of the team.
