Ex-Raven RB Lewis Speaks About Arrest

Lewis claims Arrest a “Misunderstanding”

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis said his recent arrest for allegedly failing to pay child support was a “misunderstanding.”

Lewis was charged with child abandonment in Clayton County, Ga., on Tuesday and briefly jailed, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“My arrest … was the result of a misunderstanding rather than the result of me being an unfit father,” Lewis said in a statement, according to the Carroll County Times.

“I am a responsible parent and have always provided for my children. That fact cannot be disputed. I have made mistakes in my life, but failing to care for my children is not one of them. I’m confident this matter will be resolved as the legal process plays out, and I will continue to work toward an arrangement within the court system that will allow me to effectively co-parent my son.”

Lewis is expected to be inducted in the Ravens Ring of Honor this season. You’d have to wonder in light of these events would the franchise rethink inducting the former star at this time.
