July 4 is definitely the best day of the year to enjoy a few beverages and food with your friends and family, but unfortunately for Arizona Cardinals general manager Steven Keim, he had a little too much fun.
In a time where you're supposed to enjoy the holiday, the Cardinals definitely got some news that they didn't want to hear.
Keim was arrested for a DUI at a checkpoint, and after being processed, he was released that same night.

Keim, who is the second member of the Cardinals to get arrested this year along with Christian Kirk, promptly reported the incident to the team and issued this statement:
"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."
The team also released the statement above about the incident.
Under the NFL's substance abuse policy, Keim faces a suspension for his DUI. Many first time offenders receive a two-game suspension, but with how wacky suspensions have been in the league for the past few years, who knows how long the Cardinals will be without their general manager.
