Back in March, Colts owner Jim Irsay was pulled over by police and arrested. At the time he refused to take a blood test and now it's costing him his driver's license.

The Indianapolis Star reports Thursday that Irsay's license is suspended for a year, beginning on May 27. 

Indiana law requires a one-year suspension of a driver's license when someone refuses to take a blood test. 

Irsay, according to police at the time, failed several sobriety tests. He entered rehab shortly after the March 16 arrest.

Charges were filed on May 23 in Indiana court against Irsay and he faces two counts of impaired driving.

An initial hearing is set for June 19 in Irsay's case.
