Jonas Valanciunas spent the day apologizing.

He apologized to his teammates. He apologized to his general manager. He apologized to the president of the parent corporation. He even apologized to the chairman of the board of directors.

What he didn’t do was address the media. That will come after he sits down with his lawyer, something else he had not done yet.

Valanciunas is in this predicament because instead of ordering pizza, he decided to get into his car in the wee hours of Monday morning and head for a drive thru.

It was going through that drive thru when an individual spotted open beer bottles in his car and placed a call to the local police with that information. Valanciunas was later tracked down at a nearby residence by police and charged with a DUI.
