As stipulated by Indiana state law, Jim Irsay’s driver’s license has been suspended for a year for refusing a blood test, according to the Indianapolis Star. The Colts owner was recently charged with two counts of misdemeanor OWI stemming from the incident this past March. Irsay has yet to face discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
“We like to get the facts, we like to be thorough and we like to understand them. Charges were just filed last week. I don’t believe there’s a credibility gap,” said Roger Goodell in response to NFLPA director DeMaurice Smith’s criticism last week. Until that happens, this story won’t go away.
