Falcons issue perfunctory statement regarding Turner arrest | ProFootballTalk
It had been 38 days since an NFL player was arrested, so maybe some of you forgot the routine.

Step one, player gets arrested.

Step two, mug shot emerges.

Step three, team issues meaningless, perfunctory statement acknowledging the arrest.

So here’s the Falcons’ statement regarding the arrest of running back Michael Turner: “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 incident falls within the confines of the league’s substance-abuse policy. For a first offense, Turner will likely be fined two games if/when he is convicted or pleads guilty. Barring aggravating circumstances, there will be no suspension.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Turner was driving 97 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone. Given his alleged intoxication, that could possibly be regarded as an aggravating circumstance.


I'm no one.
Who are you?

Re: Turner arrested for DUI

The replacement refs drove him to drink. That would be my defense plan if I was his lawyer

Re: Turner arrested for DUI

I'm not too bothered by this. I assume everyone else on the road is
stupid already. I'd rather you drink on the road with me than text.
At least drunks are looking at the road.

Re: Turner arrested for DUI

Even if they suspend him it's no big deal. He's averaging what 2.5 yards a carry per game?

He's not going to be suspended... just fined.

Yeah, he's been running like a drunk all season. Maybe that's the problem!
