Dion Lewis Apologizes For Arrest

If you missed the story about Dion Lewis getting arrested for pulling a fire alarm at a hotel over the weekend, be sure to check that out here. The following is a statement he issued through the Eagles today.

"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. 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 has been charged with falsely reporting a fire, which is a felony in Albany.

I suggest that he pleads it down and his punishment will be to listen to 8 hours worth of fire safety lectures from Danny Watkins.
