Detroit Lion Aaron Berry Apologizes for DUI Arrest
Lions cornerback Aaron Berry was arrested over the weekend in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on DUI charges.
Berry has since apologized in a statement through Paradigm Sports Management earlier on Tuesday: “I want to offer a sincere apology to the Lions organization, Lions fans, the coaches and all my teammates for my actions this past weekend. This is not the example I want to set for young people, and it’s certainly not what my team and coaches expect from me. I promise to do everything in my power to make sure this never happens again. I understand these are just words, and it will be my future actions that ultimately will speak for me.”
According to the Detroit Free Press, Berry is the fourth Lion to be arrested during this off-season.
The Detroit Lions also released a statement today: “We are extremely disappointed in the reports involving Aaron Berry and the incident in Pennsylvania this past weekend. This is not the standard of behavior we expect from any member of our organization. We have strongly and repeatedly emphasized the need to be accountable on and off the field, which makes this incident with Aaron all the more disappointing. We will have further comments regarding this situation when appropriate.”
As stated in the report, Berry faces two counts of accidents involving unattended vehicles and two counts of failure to stop and render aid leaving the scene of an accident.
