Broncos’ Melvin Gordon Discusses Recent Arrest



Melvin Gordon

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon has opened up about his recent arrest for DUI back on October 13th, and expressed his regret for what went down.

“Because of the legal things, I haven’t been able to publicly say what I needed to say, but to put it out [there], I am sorry I was even in the situation,” Gordon said, according to Ryan O’Halloran of The Denver Post. “I don’t want people to feel like, ‘Because Melvin didn’t say anything or didn’t speak out, he’s not apologetic about the situation.’ That’s not the case at all.”

Gordon offered his apologies for the arrest.

“Obviously, I try my best to walk a straight line and lead by example. I’m a little upset I even put myself in this situation,” Gordon said. “I had a hard time just dealing with it myself — never been in trouble before. To the people of Denver and everyone, I just don’t want anyone to feel like I don’t care and [think], ‘Oh, he has money, he doesn’t care.’ I do. I’m not happy I was in that situation.”
