The linebacker failed a series of field sobriety tests including walking balancing, and being able to recite the alphabet. According to the report Abraham was unable to complete the alphabet from C to X, eventually becoming frustrated and giving up, which led to his arrest.

If Abraham is found guilty he will be subject to suspension and fines from the NFL in addition to whatever he would face from the courts.

Last year Abraham was a major contributor to the Cardinals defense, sacking the quarterback 11.5 times and forced 4 fumbles.
