Atlanta Falcon’s (and Northern Illinois alumnus) Michael Turner set a team record Monday night with his 51st touchdown as the Falcons beat the Denver Broncos. It was after the game that things took a wrong turn.
Turner was pulled over at 4:00 a.m. for speeding, going 97 in a 55 mile per hour zone, and was asked to perform field sobriety tests after the arresting officer detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. After the tests, Turner was arrested. It has not yet been revealed whether he took a breath, blood or urine test to determine his blood alcohol level.
Turner bonded out of Gwinnett County, GA jail after posting bond.
