Orlando City forward Cyle Larin was arrested Thursday morning on a DUI charge after driving the wrong way down Orange Avenue near Lake Ivanhoe Boulevard.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a trooper pulled over the 22-year-old after he left Club ONO in downtown Orlando around 2:30 a.m. The arresting officer wrote in the report that an oncoming car stopped just before Larin's Cadillac, averting a head-on collision.

The 2015 AT&T MLS Rookie of the Year blew a .179 and a .182 during the field sobriety tests, and told the officer he had "two or three vodka Redbulls."

The officer also mentioned that he repeatedly changed the answer about how much he had to drink and had difficulty answering questions.

Larin was released on $500 bond. Orlando City has not yet commented on the incident.
