Here’s Irsay’s tweet from October:

Not saying the guy can’t have a good time, it’s just that…well, you know how these things work out.
Plus there’s this little gem that’s flying around the twittersphere this morning…
Favorited this a long time ago. Comes in handy RT @JimIrsay: I’m allergic to alcohol…I break out in handcuffs,if I drink!!!

It’s all fun and jokes until you get pulled over at 3am drunk and in possession of something illegal. You think I’ll get a response from the questions I asked Irsay on Twitter?

And that’s the worst thing about this story. Guy is worth about $1.2 billion according to Forbes and doesn’t have a driver or didn’t chose to pay for transportation after getting banged up last night. Let me say right here that if I’m ever worth $1.2 Billion I’m hiring a driver full time to ensure this shit doesn’t happen to me. No need to deal with that shit.
