Arizona Cardinals' John Abraham has been arrested for DUI and the details of his wrong-doings continue to emerge after the Pro Bowl linebacker was arrested at around 4pm ET on June 29.

His most recent offense after being charged in Georgia would be Abraham's second DUI case since he joined the NFL, however the nature of the proceedings continue to be speculated after recent reports via John Weinfuss of ESPN.

Here is the full report:

"An officer found Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl linebacker John Abraham passed out behind the wheel of his black Dodge Challenger at around 4 p.m. ET on June 29 at the intersection of an Atlanta suburb after he had left the Pink Pony strip club, according to the police report."

"More details about Abraham's arrest on a DUI charge in an Atlanta suburb emerged Tuesday, including that it took the officer "several" minutes to wake Abraham, whose speech was "very mumbled" and at time slurred"

"Abraham said he had two drinks and told offers at the scene that he had been waiting on someone to pick him up but said that person never arrived. Abraham also said he didn't feel safe to drive and didn't want to drive"

"Abraham failed a series of field sobriety tests, including the walking and balancing tests. He also couldn't recite the alphabet from C to X, according to the report, finally giving up. All of which led him to being arrested."

The linebacker has not joined up with his Arizona teammates at training camp due to the arrest, his head coach Brian Arians has excused his absence however.

Abraham has enjoyed quite the successful pro career so far but his troubles off the field could catch up to the 36-year-old who may have only a few seasons left in the NFL.

One thing that the linebacker will admit is that one night of partying will not be worth the cost of his football career, Abraham will hope to deal with this issue the best he can and return to the gridiron as soon as possible.
