Irsay had $29K in cash when arrested
CARMEL (AP) — Police say Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay had $29,000 in cash with him when he was arrested last week on suspicion of intoxicated driving.
The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1huwWGz ) it obtained the Carmel police documents on Irsay’s March 16 arrest through a public records request.
An officer writes that he stopped Irsay’s SUV after it twice stopped on a city street for no apparent reason.
The officer wrote Irsay appeared disoriented and said he was trying to find his house. Much of the cash was found in a briefcase and bags on the passenger’s side floorboard.
Prosecutors haven’t decided whether to charge Irsay over the numerous prescription drugs officers found in his vehicle.
Irsay attorney James Voyles didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment.
Louisville faces rival Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville’s quest of fulfilling coach Rick Pitino’s hopes for the Cardinals repeating as national champions and becoming a “mini-dynasty” hinge on beating archrival Kentucky.
That’s going to be a challenge against the Wildcats, who have been a thorn in the Cardinals’ side.
Eighth-seeded Kentucky (26-10) enters Friday night’s Midwest Regional showdown against fourth-seeded Louisville (31-5) with a 3-2 edge in the NCAA tournament and a 31-15 series lead. The Wildcats have won five of the last six against Louisville, including at the 2012 Final Four en route to their eighth national championship, and a 73-66 victory last year in Lexington on Dec. 28.
Kentucky would love to dash Louisville’s dream of a third straight Final Four appearance, considering the Wildcats are trying to win their second title in three years.
