Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin decided to get in on the April Fools' Day action by pranking his team, front office and fans on Twitter. 

The prank? Pretending he got a DUI.

After a mass influx of Twitter backlash, Irvin apologized to Seattle Seahawks fans as well as those from his alma mater, West Virginia. He also "banned" himself from Twitter for the rest of the day.
