Michael Turner Arrested For DUI Following Atlanta Falcons-Denver Broncos Game

Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol early Tuesday morning outside of Atlanta, not long after rushing for a touchdown and 42 yards to help the Falcons beat the Denver Broncos 27-21 on Monday Night Football.

The 30-year-old running back was jailed in Gwinnett County, Ga., after 5 a.m. ET, before posting bail. Turner was reportedly driving 95 MPH on I-85, where the speed limit is 65 MPH. The Falcons had this to say in a statement:

"We are aware of the situation involving Michael and are in the process of gathering more information. Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time."

The Broncos did a good job in limiting Turner despite the touchdown, holding the former Pro Bowler to only 2.5 yards per carry.
