Falcons RB Turner apologizes for DUI arrest

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has apologized to his team and its fans for his drunken driving arrest.
Turner said Wednesday that he made "a bad decision" before he was stopped by police in suburban Gwinnett County around 5 a.m. Tuesday -- just hours after scoring a touchdown in Atlanta's 27-21 win over Denver. Police say he was clocked doing 97 mph in a 65-mph zone and they booked him into jail on a DUI charge.
Turner says he's sorry for the embarrassment he's caused the team and vows to do the right things to address the matter. He also says he expects to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, his former team.
