2:54 PM ET
TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim misidentified himself to police during a traffic stop in the early hours of July 4 before he was arrested on suspicion of DUI, according to the police report.
Keim was pulled over after entering the gates of a community in Chandler, Arizona, and when a police officer approached Keim’s pickup truck, registered to a local dealership, the officer could “smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” and see that his eyes were “bloodshot and watery.”
Keim then identified himself by name but said he was “the director of security for the Arizona Cardinals,” according to the report. Keim then told the officer he “works with Sean McKenzie.” However, the officer noted that “the only Officer Sean McKenzie I know was killed in an off duty vehicle collision and I believed he was referencing him.” McKenzie died in an off-duty motorcycle accident in 2014, according to multiple reports.
Police first noticed Keim driving fast at 12:12 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the police report. The officer followed Keim as he drove into a business complex, got out of his car and walked toward a law firm. The
