UPDATE: Larin will undergo an assessment by MLS’s Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health (“SABH”) Program, MLS announced Thursday afternoon.

From the league’s official statement: “Larin will not be eligible to participate in any competition or team activity, until that assessment is complete, he is cleared for participation by the SABH Program doctors, and Major League Soccer completes its investigation.”

Canadian national teamer and former MLS Rookie of the Year striker Cyle Larin was arrested Thursday morning after driving the wrong way down a one-way street and testing twice the legal limit for blood alcohol.

The Brampton-born Larin, 22, was reportedly coming home from a night club and struggled with field sobriety tests.

His eyes were bloodshot and glossy, troopers said.

Larin has eight goals and an assist in 15 matches for the Lions this season. Overall, he has 40 goals and six assists in 76 matches.
