Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner was arrested for DUI and speeding early Tuesday morning, just hours after the Falcons defeated the Denver Broncos on Monday Fight Football:
Turner, 30, of Suwanee, Ga., was booked into the Gwinnett County jail in metro Atlanta just after 5 a.m. Turner spent barely two hours behind bars before he was released on $2,179 bond, jail records show.
A Gwinnett County police officer pulled over Turner’s black Audi R8 on Interstate 85 northeast of Atlanta after clocking the car’s speed at 97 mph – 32 mph over the speed limit, said Cpl. Edwin Ritter, a police spokesman.
Sounds like Turner had too good of a time celebrating the victory. Turner had 17 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown in the game. This is Turner’s first brush with the law in his professional career.
