Found June 12, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to FOX Sports South, former Falcons running back Michael Turner received a $1,000 fine and 12 months probation after being arrested last September for suspicion of driving under the influence. Turner, 31, was released by the Falcons on March 1 and has yet to sign with another team. He also agreed to the following terms: risk reduction (DUI school), alcohol and drug evaluation, no alcohol consumption and random screens. He also pleaded guilty to speeding and paid a $250 fine on that violation. Police alleged Turner was driving 97 mph in a 65-mph zone on Interstate 85 North near Indian Trail Road. Turner entered his plea on Feb. 28, the day before the Falcons cut him. It’s possible that Turner’s plea to a different charge — despite measuring a .109 blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest, above the legal limit of .08 — could help him escape possible punishment from the commissioner’s office, should he sign with another team.   Need NFL Tickets?
