Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim pleaded guilty to an extreme DUI charge in Chandler, Arizona on Tuesday.
Chandler Municipal Court records show that Keim, who was arrested on July 4, entered the guilty plea for a charge reserved for people arrested with a blood alcohol content above .15. While many aspects of Keim’s arrest came to light in the days after it was announced, his BAC was not known.
KTAR reports that Keim’s BAC was .19, which is more than twice the legal limit of .08. Extreme DUI carries a possible sentence of 30 days in jail, although former Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail after his 2017 conviction on the same charge.

Ninkovich served a similar suspension in 2016, but came back to finish the season. He retired before the start of last season, putting him at a similar spot to the 32-year-old Edelman.
You have to learn from your mistakes. Whatever supplement you took, if you say it was a mistake, it just can’t happen twice, Ninkovich said. If you make an honest mistake, and you say ‘I’m sorry,’ they’ll forgive you. But if you do it again, you can’t come back from that. Guys with multiple offenses are automatically out.
While the stigma some attach to performance-enhancing substances is still real, Ninkovich is right that the team will remain on Edelman’s side, so long as he comes back and produces.
Twelve weeks after Mullen’s departure, Fitzgerald discarded the final piece of his recovery from surgery, an ankle brace. During 7-on-7 drills this spring, Moorhead heard whoas of excitement and apprehension when Fitzgerald scrambled from the pocket at full speed. He had to slow himself down, says Derrick Fitzgerald, Nick’s father. They told him he was pushing it too hard.
