Roger Goodell to analyse Jim Irsay incident

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reveals that he will examine the facts before deciding whether to punish Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay following his arrest.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has admitted that he will analyse all the facts before deciding whether to take any action against Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay following his arrest.

Irsay was arrested two weeks ago on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and was also charged for possession of a controlled substance. The 54-year-old has since checked himself into a healthcare clinic to deal with his problems.

Goodell told reporters: "We obviously will want to understand the facts before we take any steps as it relates to any potential discipline.

"But obviously any policies, or any laws that are broken, whether you're commissioner, owner, player or coach, those are subject to discipline."

Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has given his backing to Irsay following the incident.
