Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was arrested on domestic violence charges after he turned himself in at about 6 a.m. on Tuesday. He was booked on booked on charges of assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation.
From USA Today, Sullinger also issued a statement:
“I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me,” Sullinger said in a statement. “The experience was humbling and embarrassing for me. Yet I know that this situation has brought both sorrow and embarrassment to my girlfriend, my family, the Boston Celtics organization, my teammates, and my fans. To all of you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
“My lawyers have advised me not to discuss the case at this time. But I wanted to immediately and publicly apologize to everyone affected by this situation.”
Nice of Sullinger to stay loyal to his team and wear an Ohio State Buckeyes shirt in court. I’m sure the school was thrilled that this photo is now making its way around the Internet.
