Dion Lewis Issues Apology For Arrest

On Monday, Philadelphia Eagles reserve running back Dion Lewis was arrested for pulling a fire alarm at a Hampton Inn in Albany, N.Y. over the weekend when there was no emergency.

Lewis recently issued a statement of apology which you can check out after the jump.

"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," Lewis said in a release issued by the Eagles Monday afternoon. "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, who pulled the fire alarm with his brother after being locked out of their hotel room at 4 a.m., faces a felony charge for falsely reporting a fire. He was released after his arraignment hearing and there has not been word on what further disciplinary actions will be taken by the Eagles or the NFL.
