Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was charged on Friday with two misdemeanor counts of impaired driving in connection with his March arrest.

Formal charges were filed against Irsay in Hamilton (Ind.) Superior Court just before 5 p.m. ET when the court was set to recess for the holiday weekend.

When Irsay was originally arrested in Carmel, Ind., on March 16, he was set to face charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. Prosecutors alleged Irsay had "oxycodone and/or hydrocodone" in his system when he was arrested, according to the Indianapolis Star. He had $29,000 in cash in his car when he was arrested.
