Greg Wesley would like to express his regret for the events that transpired after the Chiefs’ game versus the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis last Saturday night. “I was with a number of my teammates after the game and we were trying to be responsible while enjoying ourselves after a hard game and a long couple weeks of training camp,” said Wesley.
“We took some precautions to ensure we were not put into a position where we would be a distraction to anyone else, including not venturing out into the city but staying at the hotel club.” According to those present, one of the Chiefs’ players got agitated and created a disruptive situation that hotel and club personnel felt was not acceptable.
“I was trying to assist a teammate. I probably should have let him go but that is just not who I am,” said Wesley. Wesley went on to say, “My teammate was in trouble and I was trying to get him to his room before things escalated. In trying to help my friend my actions were misunderstood by local authorities. I guess I should have let him go on his own, but again, that just isn’t me.”
Wesley’s agent, Drew Pittman added, “We are not at liberty to discuss the ongoing legal issues associated with this event, but according to others present Greg was never threatening to the Police, he never made any disrespectful comments to the Police or acted in any way detrimental to them in their efforts to do their job. He was treated in a manner that we will most assuredly investigate.”
Wesley finished by saying, “My name and my reputation are very important to me. To be associated with this event is very upsetting to me. I am sorry for any embarrassment I might have caused the Kansas City Chiefs fans, the Chiefs’ organization, the Hunt family, the NFL and my family. My focus is on doing my job to help the Chiefs win the Super Bowl.”
