Why Do Wealthy People Get DWI’s?

There is no excuse for driving intoxicated when you have the means to avoid it.

A bit preachy, sure. But the arrest of Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay just points out once again the arrogance, and more directly, the stupidity of some of those in our society that feel they are above the law simply because they have immense assets.

Here’s a little hint. Put those assets to work. Hire a limousine driver. CALL A CAB. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I understand that drugs and/or alcohol seem to have a grip on Irsay, but I am still baffled by the notion that a man could build a football powerhouse in Indianapolis, and along with it, a personal fortune in excess of a billion dollars, and yet he can’t see the folly inherent in driving under the influence in a car laced with drugs.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHe obviously needs help and hopefully this will shake him into seeking it. But my God, what a fool. For all his brilliance and insight, what a damn arrogant fool. He should just be glad he was stopped before he killed someone.

  1. Sadly, we’re expecting rationality from people that have so much money that rationality is no longer necessary in their world. Completely 100% avoidable. Like you said, I’m just glad he didn’t kill anyone.
