Red Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks has apologized for ”distractions” caused by his arrest in Florida on charges of driving under the influence.
“I am embarrassed by the situation and apologize to my teammates and to the Red Sox organization for any distractions I may have caused," Jenks said in a statement. "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 said he will not comment further.
He was arrested Friday after a sheriff’s deputy saw his SUV driving erratically in Fort Myers, Fla. Jenks was released on bail.
An arrest report says Jenks told the deputy he took ”too many muscle relaxers.” The deputy said Jenks was shaking uncontrollably and had a difficult time speaking.
The report says Jenks also told the deputy he hit another car at a strip club. The deputy found some damage on his bumper.
