Irsay, 54, who has not been formally charged, was stopped
late on Sunday for driving at a slow speed, stopping in the
roadway and failing to signal a turn. He failed several roadside
field-sobriety tests, police in Carmel, Indiana, said.
Irsay "took the first steps toward regaining good health", the
NFL team said.
He had been booked into the Hamilton County jail early on Monday
and released later in the day after posting bond.
"He voluntarily checked into a highly respected health care
facility and is committed to undergoing the treatment and care
necessary to help him meet his challenges head-on," the team
said in a statement. It did not identify the facility.
Carmel police said a search of Irsay's vehicle yielded multiple
prescription drugs that did not match the labels on any of the
prescription pill bottles found.
Irsay was arrested on the preliminary charges of operating a
vehicle while intoxicated and four counts of possession of a
controlled substance. He has not been formally charged by the
state, the Hamilton County prosecuting attorney said on Monday.
Forbes magazine listed Irsay's net worth at about $1.6 billion
as of March.
