When someone gets behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking, they pose a risk to not only themselves but everybody they share the roadways with.

Orlando City Soccer Club forward Cyle Larin was arrested recently in Orlando, Florida and charged with driving under the influence. Investigators said a trooper spotted a white Cadillac shortly after 2:30 a.m. traveling the wrong way on the South Ivanhoe Boulevard ramp. The vehicle reportedly merged onto North Orange Avenue and continued to travel in the wrong direction and in the wrong lanes, so the trooper pulled the driver over. The driver stopped in the middle of the road and an oncoming Mercedes stopped within feet of the vehicle, preventing a head-on collision, according to the arrest report. The trooper described the man’s eyes as bloodshot and said that the vehicle smelled of alcohol.
The trooper asked the driver to pull into an adjacent parking lot, where he identified himself as Cyle Larin. A field sobriety test was performed. Larin, whose speech was slurred and who had difficulty answering questions, told the trooper that he and his female passenger were coming back from the Ono Nightclub in downtown Orlando, Florida but he said he hadn’t drunk any alcohol. Later, Larin told the trooper he had “two to three Vodka Red Bulls.” He was arrested and taken to the Orange County Jail, where he blew a .179 and .182 during breathalyzer tests, which is more than double the legal limit in Florida.
