Jared Sullinger Arrested For Assault And Battery; Pleads Not Guilty
Celtics power forward Jared Sullinger turned himself in early Tuesday morning after being arrested for assault & battery, malicious destruction of property, and witness intimidation in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend.
Reports say he allegedly pinned his girlfriend to the bed, shoved her, and tried to take away her cell phone to prevent her from calling the police.
“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. … I wanted to immediately and publicly apologize to everyone affected by this situation.”
Sullinger is due back in court on September 19th.
