INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is apologizing to Colts fans for driving while intoxicated, saying his March arrest opened his eyes “to issues in my life that needed addressing.”

Irsay pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. Afterward, he says he knows he made a mistake March 16 when he drove under the influence of prescription medications near his home in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel.

He says his arrest helped put him on a path to regaining his health. Irsay says he vows “to turn this whole experience into a positive event for myself, my family, and the community.”
