Jared Sullinger statement: “I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me. 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.”
Celtics statement on Jared Sullinger: “The Celtics were disappointed to learn of the allegations against Jared and are currently gathering more information on the situation, which we are taking very seriously. We will reserve further comment until such point that we have sufficient additional information.”
There you have it. A standard apology from the athletes handbook, “What to Say After You’ve Been Arrested.”
I believe Sully is embarrassed. And if he is guilty of hitting her, I hope he’s punished appropriately.
