Description

This is a year-long investigation into one of Indiana's most high-profile citizens: Colt's owner Jim Irsay. The investigation revealed a long history of prescription drug abuse, including brushes with the law and several serious overdoses. Irsay contended that it was a personal issue, and so the story was never aired. That is, not until WTHR learned that he was at the center of a DEA investigation into possible prescription fraud.
