Ind. Courts - "Colts owner Jim Irsay charged with 2 counts of impaired driving"

Mark Alesia and Tim Evans have posted a lengthy story this evening on the charges filed against Jim Irsay that begins:

Minutes before the court closed for Memorial Day weekend, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was charged with two misdemeanor counts of impaired driving in connection with his March arrest in Carmel.

Formal charges were filed against Irsay in Hamilton Superior Court. Following his arrest, police had filed four preliminary charges of felony drug possession, but they were not included in the prosecutor's formal charges today.

Irsay is charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in the body. Prosecutors allege he had "oxycodone and/or hydrocodone" in his system when a Carmel police officer pulled him over at 11:40 p.m. on March 16.

An initial hearing is scheduled for June 19. A news release from the Hamilton County prosecutor said the office wouldn't comment on the case until it's resolved.

The story includes photos and a video.

In addition, the story links to the 37-page arrest report.
