Turner got on the board early in Monday’s game against the Broncos, rushing for a touchdown to put the Falcons up by seven less than two minutes into the game.

Approximately 12:15 a.m.: Game Ends

Turner also had the last relevant carry of the game, a first-down run late in the fourth quarter to seal the Falcons’ win

The game went pretty long, ending (not including halftime) in 3 hours and 27 minutes. “I bet here in Atlanta there will be a lot of people not showing up for work tomorrow, ” Mike Smith joked, not knowing one of those people would in fact be his running back.

Approximately 1 a.m.: Leaves Stadium

Media time ended around 1 a.m., making it likely that Turner and his teammates would have showered and cleared out of the locker room by that point.

That’s per the police report. Turner told police he took five shots AFTER arriving at the strip club.

Approximately 4 a.m.: Pulled Over


From the Gwinnett County Police Department: “A member of the Gwinnett County Police D.U.I. Task Force observed a black Audi R8 traveling … at a high rate of speed. The officer verified the speed of the vehicle at 97 mph in a 65 mph zone … The officer made contact with the driver who identified himself as 30 year old Michael Turner of the Atlanta Falcons. The officer could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver and proceeded to conduct a D.U.I. investigation.”

According to the police report, Turner agreed to take a breathalyzer and blew a .109, which is .029 above the legal limit.
