Just hours after helping his team beat the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football, Falcons running back Michael Turner was in the Gwinnett County Jail, charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding.
Turner, 30, of Suwanee, was booked into the jail just after 5 a.m., and was released about two hours later on $2,179 bond, according to jail records.
Gwinnett police spokesman Ed Ritter said early Tuesday that he didn’t yet have details on Turner’s arrest.
Turner, who played college ball at Northern Illinois, played for the San Diego Chargers from 2004 through 2007, and joined the Falcons in 2008.
In Monday night’s game, Turner scored his 51st touchdown as a Falcon, setting a franchise record.
