On Sunday, Sep. 27, Cardinals tackle Bobby Massie returned to the team after being suspended for two games at the start of the season. His two-game suspension stemmed from a DUI incident that occurred back in January.
On ESPN, Adam Schefter said that thanks to Google, in August, the Arizona Republic reported that Massie’s arrest was traced back to a call placed to the police by a security guard who was working at the Cardinals’ training complex.
According to Schefter, Massie pulled his vehicle into the parking lot at the complex with the intention of sleeping off his alcohol intoxication, which according to the Republic measured 0.14 percent, well-above the .08 percent legal limit.
At the training complex, Massie told the police that he was at the facility to pick up his Super Bowl tickets.
The police report (via the Republic) stated that Massie told the authorities that for the last ten years, he has been impaired by alcohol every day. He also told them that he didn’t believe that he had an “alcohol problem.”
Though Massie was actually in Arizona during the incident, he told the police that he was in Virginia.
On Sunday, Oct. 4, Massie will be in Arizona against the 49ers. However, Coach Bruce Arians said that if he starts, he’s going to be on a short leash, NBC Sports reported.
