HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was expected to change his plea in connection to his OWI arrest last March.
Court records show Irsay will be in a Hamilton County courtroom to change his plea from not guilty on Sept. 2.
Irsay was facing two misdemeanor charges and was accused of driving while intoxicated in Carmel last March.
The change of plea would avoid a trial on the two charges.
Court documents said Irsay had the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and/or oxycodone in his system, but no alcohol when he was pulled over.
Both Irsay's attorney and the Hamilton County prosecutor refused to confirm that a plea deal has been reached.
Irsay also faces likely punishment from the NFL for his arrest. In many instances, the league has waited for a criminal case to end before handing down its punishment.
