Carmelo Anthony Apologizes for DUI Arrest

"I’m here to man up to my mistake, just to let you know that I’m truly sorry for what happened and everything that’s going on," Anthony said. "What happened Monday morning was truly and totally unacceptable."

He spoke for about two minutes and left without taking questions. He didn’t refer to his notes, appearing instead to speak off the cuff. The team later released a written statement attributed to him.
