INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – On Tuesday, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell announced Irsay will be suspended from the team for the first six regular season games and pay a fine to the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
Because of the suspension, Irsay is not allowed at the Colts’ facility, cannot represent the league, or attend practices.
"I acknowledge the mistake I made last March and stand responsible for the consequences of that mistake, for which I sincerely apologize to our community and to Colts fans everywhere," Irsay said in a statement.
Irsay was arrested in March for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.
Through the legal system, Irsay received one year probation, continue treatment, and pay court fines.
