INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Colts owner Jim Irsay’s license has been suspended for one year following his March OWI arrest, according to court documents.

The court ordered the license suspension on May 29 because Irsay refused to take a chemical test when he was pulled over by a Carmel police officer on March 16.

A court order was obtained and two vials of blood were taken after Irsay refused the first test. The blood test showed Irsay had hydrocodone and/or oxycodone in his system, according to the probable cause.

Irsay was charged with two misdemeanors, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with schedule I or II controlled substance in person’s body, on May 23 following his OWI arrest.

An initial hearing for Irsay is scheduled for June 19. That hearing may be waived, according to the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.
