Aaron Berry Arrest: Lions, Berry Release Statements On Incident

Shortly after a report surfaced that Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry had been arrested in Harrisburg, PA, this past weekend, both the team and player released statements about the incident.

Here is the Lions' statement courtesy of the Twitter feed of Tim Twentyman:

"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."

Berry's statement immediately followed:

"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."
