Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia Eagles running back Dion Lewis apologized for his weekend arrest in Albany, New York.
According to the Albany Times-Union. Lewis and his older brother were arrested early Saturday after banging on locked glass doors at a hotel lobby. After allegedly nearly breaking the locked glass doors, they pulled the fire alarm outside the hotel lobby.
"I want to apologize to my family, the Albany community, the Eagles organization and fans, and to the NFL for my involvement in an incident this past weekend," Lewis said in a statement released by the Eagles. "It was never my intention to cause any public alarm or damage any property. I am sorry for any embarrassment and inconvenience that my actions have caused. I am committed to continuing to conduct myself in conformance with the high moral, ethical and professional standards that I have my entire life and of which so many others rightly expect of me. Because the matter is still in the hands of the court system, I cannot comment any further."
Lewis, a former standout at Albany Academy, was a fifth-round draft pick of the Eagles last year. In 15 games during his rookie season, he had 23 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown.
