Jared Sullinger issued a statement Tuesday afternoon expressing embarrassment for a domestic dispute that allegedly turned violent over the weekend.
“I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me,” Sullinger said in the statement. “The experience was humbling and embarrassing for me. Yet I know that this situation has brought both sorrow and embarrassment to my girlfriend, my family, the Boston Celtics organization, my teammates, and my fans. To all of you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
“My lawyers have advised me not to discuss the case at this time. But I wanted to immediately and publicly apologize to everyone affected by this situation.”
The Celtics also issued a statement in conjunction with Sullinger, declining further comment on the matter.
“The Celtics were disappointed to learn of the allegations against Jared and are currently gathering more information on the situation, which we are taking seriously,” the statement reads. “We will reserve further comment until such point that we have sufficient additional information.”
