Orlando City star forward, Cyle Larin, was pulled over at 2:32 a.m. on Thursday morning, and was later arrested for DUI. Larin now has to complete MLS’ Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program before he can return to any team activities.

TMZ got hold of the police officer’s dash camera video, and below is the transcript to the footage which details the events that led to Larin’s arrest. The video is not easy to watch, but luckily no one was injured.

Officer (to dispatch): I’ve got a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road.

Police officer goes into left side of street and turns on lights. Both cars are stopped on side of the road.

Officer: Hey!

Larin: How you doing?

Officer: Put the car in park.

Larin: Yup.

Officer: Turn it off.

Larin: This guy, this guy came in front of me. This guy cut in front of me, over there.

Officer: You’re on the wrong side of the road.

Officer: You're from Canada?

Larin: Yup.

Officer: How much have you had to drink tonight, sir?

Larin: I didn't have anything.
