Bobby Jenks on DUI: “I am embarrassed and apologize”

23 Comments

Red Sox right-hander Bobby Jenks issued a short written statement Sunday afternoon about his ugly Friday morning DUI arrest. Boston Herald beat writer Scott Lauber provides the text:

“I am embarrassed by the situation and apologize to my teammates and to the Red Sox organization for any distractions I may have caused. I still need to let the legal process run its course and until it does, I will not be able to make any further comment.”

Jenks is being charged with driving under the influence, hit and run and three counts of property damage.

He underwent multiple back surgeries this winter and is not expected to be ready for major league action until the middle of the 2012 regular season. Not that any of that stuff particularly matters right now.
