Philadelphia Eagles star tight end Brent Celek was involved in an auto accident Wednesday morning near the teams complex. Celek, as well as all others involved, walked away uninjured. However, the driver in Celeks car may disagree as he was arrested for driving under the influence.
Celek had this to say: “I did not know that the person driving the car was over the legal limit, but that’s not an excuse. I put my life in danger and was in a vehicle that put other people’s lives in danger, and that’s just not the way I operate. It will not happen again,” he said in the statement, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
It remains to be seen what the reaction will be from the Eagles and the NFL.
