CARMEL, Ind. (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 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 that officers found in his vehicle.

Irsay attorney James Voyles didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment.
