Michael Turner arrested for DUI following Falcons’ win over Broncos

Michael Turner and the Falcons got off to a fast start against the Broncos on Monday night and never looked back. Turner scored a touchdown after Atlanta’s defense picked off Peyton Manning for the first time, which made him the franchise leader with 51 career touchdowns with the Falcons. There was a lot to celebrate after the game, but Turner should have done it responsibly.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Turner was arrested hours after the game and charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and speeding. He was released on $2,179 bond after about two hours in jail.

Obviously this is not good news for the 30-year-old Turner. He was already expected to see a decline in production this season, and a potential suspension could force him to fall behind and get into a situation he cannot recover from at his age.

Michael Turner’s girlfriend and baby mama allegedly in fight involving golf club

If past reports are true, then Michael Turner and Tiger Woods have a lot more in common than we ever realized — they each saw fights at their house involving women carrying golf clubs.

According to TMZ, police were called to Turner’s Georgia mansion Monday to break up a fight between Turner’s girlfriend and the mother of his two children.

The police report states that the mother of Turner’s children went over to the house because Turner refuses to see their children. She also reportedly wanted to tell him she was pregnant with their third child.

TMZ says “[Rasheeda] Walker told cops she knocked on the front door … only to be ambushed by Turner’s new GF Elizabeth Delacruz … who was wielding a golf club and shouting, “YOU AT MY HOUSE NOW B*TCH.”

Turner supposedly had to run outside to break up the fight. Delacruz says she grabbed a golf club in self defense after Walker entered the house through a back door.

Neither woman wanted to press charges, but Walker was hit with a tresspass warning. The good news is at least Turner didn’t back his Escalade into a tree. Let’s also hope he hasn’t been with his current girlfriend longer than his baby mama has been pregnant, otherwise he may have another fight on his hands.
