Former Ravens RB Jamal Lewis Calls Arrest A 'Misunderstanding'
Former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis has issued a statement reacting to his arrest Wednesday night in Georgia and being charged with child abandonment, Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reports. "My arrest on Wednesday evening was the result of a misunderstanding rather than the result of me being an unfit father," Lewis said in a statement released to the Times. "I am a responsible parent and have always provided for my children. That fact cannot be disputed. I have made mistakes in my life, but failing to care for my children is not one of them. I'm confident this matter will be resolved as the legal process plays out, and I will continue to work toward an arrangement within the court system that will allow me to effectively co-parent my son." Lewis, 32, was processed and booked and released from jail, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper. Retired from football, Lewis allegedly hasn't been in contact with his son, according to court records. A former 2,000-yard rusher and NFL Offensive Player of the Year, Lewis is scheduled to be inducted into the Ravens' Ring of Honor in September prior to their game against the Cleveland Browns.
