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.
