Jim Irsay DWI | New Orleans, LA Defense Attorney | Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias, LLCIn recent years, we’ve seen more and more arrests related to DWI and professional football players.  It seems that as more focus is placed on these stars, the more mishaps we are able to see.  However, football players are not the only ones prone to these law-breaking mishaps.

Jim Isray, owner of the Indianapolis Colts, was taken into custody after being arrested on suspicion of DWI and having found a controlled substance in his possession.

According to, USA Today, & NY Daily News, Isray was arrested Sunday, March 16 and booked into the Hamilton County Jail in Noblesville at 3:07 a.m.

Details are still being released about his arrest, but he was pulled over after driving his silver Toyota Highlander “at a slow rate of speed” when he “came to a complete stop in the lane of travel,” then failing to signal a turn, police spokesman Lt. Joe Bickel has reported to the news.

Police found several prescription bottles filled with drugs that weren’t associated with the labels on the prescription bottles inside his car.  He is facing a preliminary misdemeanor charge of DWI and four counts of possession of a controlled substance, which could result in six months to three years in prison on each count if convicted.

Due to the severity of his charges, Isray could easily spend over 10 years in prison if convicted on all charges, whch have not yet been formally filed.  All it took for officers to pull Isray over was his erratic driving behavior, and once he failed a few sobriety tests, he taken into custody.  If you showed any similar signs of intoxication similar to Isray’s, you could be arrested on suspicion of DWI.

If you have been charged with a DWI in New Orleans, you must be swift in reaching out for help.  Contact an experienced DWI attorney as soon as possible if you are suspected of driving while intoxicated in or near New Orleans, Louisiana.
