Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was cited for driving under the influence on July 4 in Chandler, Arizona.

Chandler police reportedly told the media that further details are unavailable because a full arrest report hasn't been completed yet.

Keim and the Cardinals organization released a statement about the news.

"I truly regret my incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions," Keim said in his statement. "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 will be suspect to the league's substance abuse policy that holds true for both players and team staff.

He joined the Cardinals staff as a college scout in 1999 and has served as the team's general manager since 2013. Earlier this year, Keim signed an extension through the 2022 season.

Keim played collegiately for NC State where he was a two-time All-ACC selection as an offensive lineman.
