It may be no secret that drug addiction knows no socio-economical boundaries. And this is once again validated with the arrest of Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay recently.

According to the Indy Star, “Irsay was arrested for driving while under the influence and possession of a controlled substance, after being stopped late Sunday by police.

“In November 2002, Irsay admitted he had checked himself into an out-of-state rehabilitation facility after becoming dependent on prescription pain medications. That revelation came after his name was linked to a federal and local investigation involving possible prescription drug fraud by a local plastic surgeon.”

Irsay has talked about his painkiller addiction over the years in 2003, 2005 and as recently as 2012.
