Former Pistons star Ben Wallace will be serving a two-day jail sentence after pleading no contest to his arrest for leaving the scene of a February car crash in Virginia, according to a report by WTVR. Wallace received a one-year sentence, but the judge reduced it to two days, and Wallace began serving the sentence Tuesday. ALLEGEDLY Wallace crashed his SUV into a fence, taking out a 20-foot section of it, around 2 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8.
Irsay took to Twitter after being released Monday, thanking his followers for their support.
The reason why he smashed his car into the fence? Wallace lost control of his SUV and crashed upon hearing the news that he would be a father for the fourth time. The problem is that the child is not going to be with his wife.
Ben and wife, Chanda Wallace, are the parents of two sons, Ben Jr. and Bryce, and one daughter, Bailey. Chanda is aware of the illicit tryst with the groupie and the subsequent new child. So when the groupie began popping off at the mouth, Mrs. Wallace, who is ALLEGEDLY created fake accounts, came back at her on Twitter.
Excuse me for wondering, but does it seem like Ben Wallace should be getting the blunt of Chanda Wallace’s wrath? I guess the Virginia judicial system is taking care of some of this nonsense.
We expect news like this from a player, but an owner of an NFL team?
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay faces four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance after being arrested late Sunday on suspicion of intoxicated driving. Irsay was pulled over in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Carmel where he failed several roadside field sobriety tests before he was arrested and police officers found multiple prescription drugs inside his vehicle.
On Monday afternoon, The 54-year-old Irsay was released and his initial court appearance is March 26. In 2002, the Colts owner acknowledged that he was dependent on painkillers after several orthopedic operations but said he had overcome the problem after undergoing treatment.
If convicted on the felony charges, Irsay could face six months to three years in prison on each count. So-called Schedule IV drugs such as those with which Irsay was allegedly caught include Xanax, Darvocet and Ambien, which have a low risk for abuse or dependency, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency.
While searching Irsay’s vehicle, “Multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles. These Schedule IV prescription drugs were not associated with any prescription bottles found in the vehicle,” according to police.

He will be subject to league discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy, which applies to all personnel (even owners); it will be interesting to see how Roger Goodell handles this situation, He’s good at dropping the hammer on players, let’s see what he does when he has to discipline one of his employers.
