Michael Turner Arrest: Atlanta HC Mike Smith Comments

Following the arrest of running back Michael Turner on charges of driving under the influence and speeding, head coach Mike Smith was asked to comment. On Tuesday, he told the media,

"First and foremost, anytime a player sheds negatively on our football team and organization, we are very disappointed. This is a legal matter that it's very well defined how we have to proceed with it through the League, and we'll let the process run its course. I've spoken with Michael. We've had a conversation and like all conversations with my players I would like to keep those internal. He knows that we're disappointed in the decisions that he made after the ballgame last night."

Turner was out celebrating, following a 27-21 victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night. He was originally clocked at 32 mph over the speed limit.
