Colts owner Jim Irsay will go on trial just over a week before his team opens the NFL season.
A trial date of Thursday, August 28 was set by the Hamilton County Superior Court after Irsay waived a preliminary hearing on charges stemming from his arrest by Carmel Police the night of March 16.
Irsay faces two counts of driving while impaired on prescription drugs after police found several pill bottles and $29,000 in cash inside his car.
The Colts open their season in Denver 10 days later, Sunday night September 7.
Irsay is scheduled to have a bench trial before Superior Court Judge Richard Campbell and faces a maximum sentence of 60 days in jail if he is convicted. He has already had his driver‘s license suspended for one year because he refused to submit to a blood test.
Officers later drew blood from Irsay after obtaining a warrant, and he subsequently spent a short time at a rehab facility before attending Indy‘s failed bid for the 2018 Super Bowl.
