Cowboys corner Bryan McCann has in fact released a statement regarding his arrest for public intoxication early Saturday morning. Details are still fuzzy, but McCann was arrested and held for several hours before his release Saturday. He maintains his innocence.
“I was not intoxicated and did not pose a danger to myself or others,” McCann said in a statement released through his agent John Biggins. "I am very grateful that, due to the Constitution and Americans’ strong and enduring belief in due process, I am presumed innocent of this public intoxication charge because I am innocent.”
“My good name and reputation mean everything to me,” McCann said in his statement. “I have never been arrested before and take pride in conducting myself at all times in a responsible and respectful manner off the football field.”
McCann will still be subject to potential conduct discipline from the NFL office, despite the league’s imminent lockout.
