According to Bickel, “multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles“, however, the drugs found were not associated with any prescription bottles in Irsay’s vehicle. The Colts have officially issued a statement, saying “The Club continues to fully support Mr. Irsay but must refrain from commenting further at least until formal charges have been filed“.
