PHOENIX — Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was cited for a DUI on July 4. He was released that same night after being processed.

Chandler police confirmed to KTAR News 92.3 it happened during a traffic stop near Dobson and Ocotillo roads.

The team and Keim released statements Saturday morning.

“We are aware of the incident on Wednesday involving Steve Keim. He fully recognizes the seriousness of the situation and that this type of behavior is unacceptable and inexcusable,” the statement said.

“Steve immediately alerted the team who in turn reported it to the NFL as required under the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. We are continuing to gather information and will handle the matter appropriately and in accordance with all league policies as well as within the legal system.”

Keim’s statement, who was promoted to Cardinals general manager in 2013 after spending time in the team’s front office, is below.

“I truly regret my incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions. Everyone associated with the NFL and its teams is held to a high standard of behavior and I obviously failed to meet that. I sincerely apologize to our organization and its fans as well as to my family. I accept full responsibility for my actions and hold myself completely accountable. Moving forward, I will take the steps to ensure that I never put myself or the Cardinals in this type of situation again.”

Keim has been with the organization since 1999. In February, he signed a four-year contract extension through the 2022 season.

Two years ago, former Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd was suspended four games because of an arrest for a DUI in Scottsdale.
