Cardinals Owner Speaks Out After Keim’s DUI Arrest

Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim is being held accountable for his actions and poor decision making. Team owner Michael Bidwill spoke out on Friday for the first time following Keim’s DUI arrest earlier this month.

“In this day and age there’s no excuse to drink and drive, we have Lyft, and we have Uber,” said Bidwill. “It was not a mistake; it was not an accident, he made a conscientious decision to drive after he’d been drinking.”

Keim was pulled over by Chandler Police officers for driving erratically during the early morning hours of July 4. His arrest was captured on Police body cam footage.

According to police, Keim’s eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and his breath smelled of alcohol. During a field sobriety test, he was reportedly unable to follow a pen with his eyes, although he declined to take a Breathalyzer and other tests. Once it was determined that Keim’s blood alcohol was twice the legal limit at the time of his arrest, harsher penalties were enforced.

“You know I’ve suspended him for five weeks and fined him $200,000,” said Bidwill.
