Dallas police have apologized to Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, correcting their initial mistake when they said he was arrested.
In fact, the NFL player wasn't arrested and charged with public intoxication at a Dallas nightclub.
It was actually Talib's older brother, Yaqub Talib, who was arrested.
“My apologies to Aqib Talib,” said Maj. Max Geron, a Dallas police department spokesman, wrote on Twitter. “Original information reported was incorrect.”
It was Geron who initially announced that Aqib Talib, who has a history of off-field problems, had been arrested.
Geron explained the mistake by an incorrect internal email that led to the confusion.
According to police, Yaqub Talib was involved in a disturbabce and was "the primary instigator, throwing bottles and becoming very physical with the people around him. That’s the reason he was arrested.”
