Somewhat outspoken and somewhat dramatic Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on preliminary charges of driving while somewhat intoxicated this weekend. He also had a "controlled substance" on him at the time when he was stopped by Carmel, Indiana police.
Local news outlets are reporting little more than the $22,500 bail set for his release, but as Mike Wells of NFL Network pointed out, this is something of a relapse.

As the editor of Pro Football Talk pointed out, the reception of this news has differed from the usual case of an NFL personality driving drunk.
