NOBLESVILLE, Ind. >> Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay won't have to appear in court Thursday for an initial hearing on the drug-related charges he faces.

The Indianapolis Star reports Irsay's attorneys filed a motion Wednesday waiving his appearance on misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with a Schedule I or II controlled substance in his body.

The charges carry maximum penalties of 60 days in jail and $500 fines for each count. Hamilton County court documents say Irsay was driving under the influence of prescription painkillers.

The 54-year-old Irsay was arrested near his home in suburban Carmel after police say he was spotted driving slowly, stopping in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal. Police say he failed field sobriety tests.
