He faced misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and assault stemming from a November 2014 incident involving his former girlfriend in a Sandusky, Ohio, hotel room. He plead contest to a lesser charge of disturbing the peace. Photos show bruises on her face. Clark has said he didn't hit her. Police report photos showed bruises on the victim's face, but Clark has said repeatedly that he did not hit her. "At the end of the day, you don't want to be labeled a woman-beater and things of that nature," Clark said. "But at the same time, it doesn't bother me because I know what I did and what I didn't do. I put myself in a bad position. But there are only two people who know what happened. I've been honest and up front this whole time, as much as I can. That's all I can do." "If I could go back and change things, I would. I would change a lot of things. I'm not a complete or perfect person. I'm still learning. But I'm not a bad person at all. I'm a great guy to be around, and I want to gain the trust of everyone." Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
