The Brampton, Ont. -born 22-year-old was busted for DUI early Thursday morning after police say he blew a.179 and.182 in consecutive breathalizer tests.

The Sentinel reported that Florida Highway Patrol officers said Larin was with a female passenger, and had been told by the pair that they were coming from Club ONO in downtown Orlando.

A state trooper saw Larin's Cadillac and pulled him over, the report stated.

"Oh, I didn't know that", he can be heard telling the trooper. The legal limit in Florida is.08 percent.

He was booked into the Orange County Jail. The Club is very disappointed in Cyle Larin's actions that resulted in this charge and does not take this situation lightly.

Toronto FC plays at Orlando City next month.

Later, once handcuffed and in the vehicle, Larin asked the trooper if he could call his manager because Orlando City, he said, "has cops that work for us" who can "sort out the situation".

"The driver's eyes were extremely bloodshot and glossy", the report continued. "Canada Soccer will remain in contact with Orlando City SC and Major League Soccer in respect of the protocols to be followed".

As Larin came to a stop, someone driving a Mercedes was able to stop in time to prevent a head-on crash, according to the arrest report.

The league said Larin will not be eligible "to participate in any competition or team activity", until that assessment is complete and he is cleared for participation by SABH Program doctors and MLS completes its investigation. His second breath test showed that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.182, the FHP said. He had 14 in 2016 and has eight so far this season.

Larin most recently appeared for Canada's men's national team in a 2-1 win over Curacao Tuesday night in Montreal and is regarded as one of the top young prospects in Major League soccer.
