A few days after the NFL assured its players that, even though there’s no CBA and the owners are locking them out, the personal conduct policy still applies, players keep getting arrested.
Last week, Raiders T Mario Henderson (allegedly carrying a concealed firearm) and Vikings CB Chris Cook (allegedly brandishing a firearm) were placed in handcuffs.
This time it was Cowboys CB Bryan McCann, who (according to the Dallas Morning News , ) was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication.
He was arrested at 3 a.m. Saturday, taken to a detox center and released eight hours later.
McCann’s most impressive play during his rookie year last season was a 101-yard interception return he made vs. the Giants.
UPDATED (10:50 p.m.): McCann has released a statement (via the Morning News ) :
"To my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and all Dallas Cowboy & SMU fans,
My good name and reputation mean everything to me. 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. I was not intoxicated and did not pose a danger to myself or others.
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. I look forward to vigorously defending myself in a court of law. I thank you for your continued support.''
