As we reported earlier today, Dion Lewis was arrested along with his older brother, Lamar Lewis, for falsely reporting a fire by pulling a fire alarm early Saturday morning. Today, Lewis apologized for his arrest:
“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,” Lewis said in a statement released by the Eagles. “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.”
Although Lewis did not specifically apologize for the specific crime, it does show acknowledge that he did something wrong. Hopefully, Lewis learns from this mistake. At 21 years of age, he is still young and may have made a youthful mistake.
