Gallardo makes statement regarding arrest

Yovani Gallardo just made a brief statement for the cameras at Miller Park about this morning’s arrest for driving while intoxicated. He then left without taking questions.

Here’s what he had to say:

“You obviously know why I’m here. First of all, I just want to start out… Obviously, last night, I made a bad decision. You know, I made a mistake. I made a mistake. I’m sure I’ve lost a lot of respect from a lot of fans, but I just want to apologize. I apologize to the fans, to my teammates, my family. You know, like I said, it’s just a bad call. It’s something I shouldn’t have done. I regret it. But at this point, you know, there’s nothing I can do about it now. You know, it happened.

“Like I said, I just want to apologize to the whole organization and all the people in Milwaukee for my actions. It’s not very easy. It’s one of those things — I truly am sorry. I’m going to make sure something like this never happens again. Whatever circumstances, consequences, whatever I have to do so this won’t happen again, I’m going to do it.

“At this point, I wish I could answer your questions right now, but obviously it’s one of those things that’s — it’s an ongoing process. I mean, I don’t know how long it’s going to get this cleared up, the whole situation that happened. The main thing, like I said, I came out here to apologize, especially to the people that look up to me and things like that. Obviously, it’s something that I regret, and like I said, I’ll make sure it never happens again.”
