Atlanta Falcons: Michael Turner Arrested on Speeding and DUI Charges

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The seemingly never ending saga of NFL athletes having run-ins with the law continued last night after the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Denver Broncos 27-21 on Monday Night Football.

NFL.com is reporting that Falcons running back Michael Turner was pulled over for going 97 mph on Interstate 85 northeast of Atlanta, where the speed limit is 65 mph. Atlanta police stated in a news release that  “The officer could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver and proceeded to conduct a DUI investigation.”

Turner posted bail and was released after the incident, which occurred only hours after Monday night’s game. The Falcons stated that they were still “gathering information” and had no substantial comment to make on the issue.
