Just hours after assisting the Atlanta Falcons to victory against the Denver Broncos, Michael Turner was arrested for driving under the influence. Turner, who rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown in the game, was pulled over by Atlanta police around 5 a.m. today for speeding. Officials say he was doing 97 in a 65. During the stop, officers detected the odor of alcohol and arrested the 30-year-old for driving under the influence. Turner was taken to the Gwinnett County Jail and later released on $2,179 bond.
Before today’s fiasco, Turner made headlines for having 7 children with 5 different women. Reps for the running back have yet to comment on his arrest. –danielle canada
