CHANDLER, Ariz. — The Chandler Police Department released body camera footage Wednesday of Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim's July 4 arrest for DUI.
The video gives a better idea of what happened that night.
It begins with an officer following Keim through the streets of Chandler. Police say he swerved, sped and nearly ran into a curb while making a turn.
Eventually officers pulled him over and that’s when he told officers he had drank two beers that night.
During the stop, police say he refused part of the field sobriety test, claiming he had a bad knee. He also refused a breath test.
Officers then arrested him for DUI and later conducted a blood test in a mobile command center.
The following is part of what you hear in the newly released body camera video:
Officer: "How much have you had to drink tonight?"
Keim: "Two beers."
Officer: "Two beers? How long ago?"
Keim: "Um probably like 10:30-11."
Officer: “What I’m gonna have you do, is blow into this. It's not admissible in court, it just verifies what I'm already seeing."
Keim: "Um, I'm not gonna do that."
Officer: "Okay, that's fine, go ahead and get your hands out of your pockets. Right now, you are under arrest for DUI."
Chandler PD has not released the results of Keim's blood test.
Since Keim’s DUI arrest, Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill has spoken out, saying there will be consequences.
Keim has apologized for what he called “incredibly poor judgment.”
