Jim Irsay Trial Pushed Back to October

A request by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay to have his trial delayed has been granted.

The trial date was initially set for Aug. 28, but a motion for continuance was filed by Irsay’s lawyers Monday.   Irsay's new court date is scheduled for Oct. 30 at 9 a.m.

Irsay faces two misdemeanor charges and is accused of driving while intoxicated in Carmel last March.  Court documents said Irsay had the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and/or oxycodone in his system, but no alcohol when he was pulled over.

The charges carry maximum penalties of 60 days in jail and $500 fines for each count.
