NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has been released from jail after being held overnight following a traffic stop in which police said they found multiple prescription drugs inside his vehicle.

Irsay was stopped late Sunday after he was spotted driving slowly near his home in suburban Carmel, stopping in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal. Police say the 54-year-old Irsay failed several roadside field sobriety tests before he was arrested.

Carmel police said the drugs found in Irsay’s vehicle weren’t associated with any prescription bottles found inside.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Bryant Orem says Irsay faces a preliminary misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Irsay faces a hearing March 26 at 1:15 p.m.
