Yet another disturbing report from the Arizona Cardinals on the management side of things.

According to ABC 15 in Arizona, Cardinals COO and Executive Vice President Ron Minegar was arrested late Saturday night on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The police report claims that Minegar was stopped at 11:30 p.m. for swerving into the bicycle lane, speeding, and being unable to drive within one lane of traffic. He was subsequently cited and released while authorities begin formulating and conducting an investigation into the incident.

The marks the second season in a row in which a high-ranking Cardinals exec was arrest on the suspicion of DUI. Arizona natives surely remember general manager Steve Keim being fined $200,000 and suspended for five weeks for the disturbing violation.

We can only assume that a similar fine and moratorium looms in Minegar's future, regardless of whether he is found guilty or not. Folks, we don't have to tell you how appalling DUIs are.

Carelessly endangering your own life and the lives of other countless innocents on the road is about as detestable an action as there is.
