CHANDLER, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim has pleaded guilty to extreme DUI after a Fourth of July arrest in a Phoenix suburb.

A Chandler police report shows Keim had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19. That’s more than twice Arizona’s legal limit of 0.08 for drivers.

Keim entered his plea Tuesday.

It wasn’t immediately clear when Keim would be sentenced or if he was facing a jail term.

According to the arrest report, Keim told police officers he only had two beers and ate pizza two hours before he got pulled over.

But officers said they smelled alcohol on Keim’s breath and he had slurred speech.

Keim also refused to take several field sobriety tests, but did consent to have his blood drawn.

Keim has been the Cardinals GM since 2013.
