Jim IrsayBillionaire owner, Jim Irsay, 54, of the Indianapolis Colts was arrested Sunday night on four felonies including driving while intoxicated, and possession of a controlled substance.

The billionaire has battled drug addiction for years as friends say,”‘He’s a sick, sick man,’ one source told the Indy Star. ‘He desperately needs help!”  Family members are concerned his problem has worsened.

It will be interesting to see how the media responds to this incident.  Though his arrest may be a blessing in disguise, it also points to the pervasive nature of substance abuse in our country.
