Cowboys cornerback Bryan McCann was charged with public intoxication earlier today, following his arrest. McCann was released at approximately 11 am, and he has since released a statement claiming that he was not drunk.
“I was not intoxicated and did not pose a danger to myself or others,” McCann said in a statement released through his agent John Biggins. “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.
“My good name and reputation mean everything to me,” McCann said in his statement. “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.”
