Orlando City Soccer's Cyle Larin Arrested For DUI: FHP

Orlando City Soccer Club star Cyle Larin has been arrested on a charge of drunken driving in Orlando, Florida Highway Patrol said. 

FHP says the 22-year-old Larin was arrested early Thursday after driving the wrong way on an Orlando street. Another car just avoided a head-on collision with Larin's Cadillac.

The highway patrol says tests showed his blood-alcohol content at 0.179, over twice the legal limit of 0.08. He told the trooper he and a female companion had just left a club where he had two or three drinks.

Larin will undergo an assessment by Major League Soccer's Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program doctors, MLS said in a statement.

He won't be eligible to compete or participate in team activities until MLS completes its investigation, the assessment is complete and program doctors clear him. 

"The Club is very disappointed in Cyle Larin’s actions that resulted in these charges and does not take this situation lightly," Orlando City Soccer Club said in a statement. "We are working with local authorities, Major League Soccer and Cyle to take appropriate action in line with league protocol." 

Larin was Major League Soccer's rookie of the year in 2015, scoring 17 goals. He had 14 in 2016 and eight so far this season.

Orange County jail records show Larin remained held Thursday morning. They did not indicate if he has a lawyer.
