Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on Sunday night for driving under the influence and four felony counts of possession. He has since been released and taken to Twitter to thank those who are supporting him.

The Colts had previously released a statement on Irsay’s arrest.

“We are gathering information at this time regarding last night’s incident involving Jim Irsay. The team will issue additional statements when the facts are sorted and we are aware of the next steps to this process. Many fans have reached out to express their concern and we appreciate their support.”

They followed that up with a statement at 4:12 p.m. ET.

“The Club continues to fully support Mr. Irsay but must refrain from commenting further at least until formal charges have been filed. A hearing is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday, March 26.”
