After being arrested on Dec. 20 and charged with DUI and possession of marijuana oil, Michael Ray released a statement today (Dec. 21).
“I want to apologize to my fans, family, and my hometown community for placing myself in this situation,” said Michael. “I am so very sorry for the disappointment these events have caused everyone. I know it will take time, however, I will do everything I can to rebuild your trust.”
According to the police report, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler that Michael was driving bumped the car in front of him in the McDonald’s drive-thru around 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 20 in Eustis, Fla.
The “Kiss You in the Morning” singer failed several sobriety tests and refused a breathalyzer test. Cops also found marijuana oil in Michael’s pocket.
“While speaking to Michael I noticed he had blood shot eyes, slurred speech, he stumbled while walking and smelled of alcohol . . . he said he was coming from a bar in Tavares,” the arresting officer said in the report, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
TMZ has video footage of the arrest, which you can watch below.
