Colts safety Joe Lefeged has been released from jail, three days after being arrested on weapons charges.
As he was leaving the jail, Lefeged made his first public comments on the situation.
According to WJLA-TV, Lefeged said he’s sorry and that the case against him is “drummed up.”
His comments come amid at least one report linking via documentation (including a receipt found in the car with the gun) showing that Lefeged had bought the gun.
It also has been reported that the driver of the car fled police, and that Lefeged then fled on foot. The driver has still not been apprehended.
Maybe he’ll say the eventual charges against him are “drummed up,” too.
