Canadian soccer star Cyle Larin arrested for drunk driving in Florida

Canadian soccer star Larin arrested on DUI charge

Canadian worldwide 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.

"The Club is very disappointed in Cyle Larin's actions that resulted in this charge and does not take this situation lightly", Orlando City Soccer Club said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

The report said Larin had difficulty following some of the trooper's instructions during the field sobriety test and kept changing his answer when asked how much he had to drink, the report said.

The police say Larin, 22, was going the wrong way down Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando. While performing sobriety exercises out of his vehicle, he later said he had drunk two or three "Vodka Red Bulls". He remained in jail pending the posting of a bond when news of his arrest emerged around 9am ET on Thursday.




Larin, a native of Ontario, initially tried to use Canada's driving rules as reason for his driving on the wrong side of the road.

Drafted first overall in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, Larin won rookie of the year honours. He had 14 in 2016 and has eight so far this season.

The MLS club declined to comment before speaking with the player, but it is expected to issue a statement at some point today. "We are working with local authorities, Major League Soccer and Cyle to take appropriate action in line with league protocol". He didn't appear Wednesday night for Orlando City in its US Open Cup loss to Miami FC.

Larin played 61 minutes for the Canadian national team in a 2-1 friendly win against CuraƧao on Tuesday evening. He has scored 39 goals in 74 MLS appearances and drawn interest from European teams.
