Canadian soccer star Larin arrested on DUI charge

Canadian global Cyle Larin, a young MLS forward seen destined for European soccer glory, instead found himself in jail Thursday after being arrested on a drunk-driving charge.

Orlando City Soccer Club star Cyle Larin has been arrested on a charge of drunken driving.

Citing the Florida Highway Patrol, the Sentinel's report states the 22-year-old Orlando City striker was pulled over after driving the wrong way on Orange Ave., north of downtown Orlando.

He blew a.179 and a.182 on sobriety tests. The legal limit in Florida is.08. He will undergo an assessment by MLS' Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health ("SABH") Program doctors pursuant to the SABH Policy.

Troopers said Larin's eyes were "extremely bloodshot and glassy", and there was an "obvious odor of alcoholic beverage omitting from the vehicle", according to an arrest report.

Larin told the officer he was from Toronto and unfamiliar with the area, although he said he had lived in Orlando for three years. His second breath test showed that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.182, the FHP said.

Orlando City SC confirmed the charge but said it would not be making a comment until later in the day when it had spoken to its player.

The arrest came after Larin was rested for Orlando's 3-1 home loss to Miami FC in the U.S. Open Cup fourth round Wednesday. "We are working with local authorities, Major League Soccer and Cyle to take appropriate action in line with league protocol".

Larin is one of the top strikers in MLS and has scored eight goals in 15 league games this season.
