[Kansas City.com] Defensive end Jared Allen apologized Tuesday to Chiefs fans for “letting them down” by drinking and driving on two occasions this year.
Allen was charged Sept. 26 with driving under the influence in Leawood. At the time, he was participating in a court program stemming from his arrest in May in Overland Park on the same charge.
In a statement released by Allen’s attorney, Kevin Regan, Allen said he had “exercised poor judgment and made bad decisions regarding drinking and driving. I accept complete responsibility for my actions.”
“Drinking and driving are wrong and I will never put myself or others in that situation again.”
Allen said he wanted to apologize to those close to him for the embarrassment he has caused them and to fans for letting them down. He said he is taking the right steps to deal with the situation and to make sure it never happens again.
