Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings says he wasn’t driving drunk when he was arrested on charges of DWI, speeding and reckless driving in Gwinnett County, Georgia on Wednesday morning.

Jennings sent out a tweet Wednesday night apologizing for speeding, but saying he wasn’t driving under the influence.

Jennings also retweeted a story by Peggy Kusinski of NBC Chicago saying that Jennings did not fail a breathalyzer test as the test was not administered. The story claims Jennings was running late for a student-teacher conference at his child’s school when he was pulled over for speeding.

While the story doesn’t say Jennings refused a breathalyzer test, doing so can result in its own legal issues and may have been the reason a test wasn’t administered.
