Colts owner's license suspended for refusing test

Colts owner Irsay's driver's license suspended for 1 year for refusing blood test after arrest

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A court has suspended Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay’s driver’s license for one year following his arrest for driving while intoxicated.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1pUleLq ) that recently released documents in Hamilton County confirm the license suspension effective starting May 27. Police and prosecutors have declined to discuss the case.

Irsay refused a blood test after his March 16 arrest in Carmel, a suburb of Indianapolis. Indiana law requires a one-year license suspension for refusing such a test. Police later obtained a warrant ordering Irsay to submit to a blood draw.

Irsay faces a June 19 initial hearing on two misdemeanor counts of impaired driving. A probable cause affidavit said Irsay was driving under the influence of powerful painkillers.

A message seeking comment was left with a spokeswoman for Irsay.
