Justin Sellers reported to Dodgers camp early on Thursday, one day before position players report, and wanted everyone to know his side of the story from his Jan. 19 arrest.
"I just want to make it very clear that I didn't mean to bring this negative attention to the Dodgers," Sellers said. "It was a very frustrating situation for me and my family, because I don't know what I did wrong."
Sellers was arrested at his West Sacramento for reckless driving on his motorcycle and evading arrest on Jan. 19, with reports of a chase. But the infielder said it didn't happen quite as reported.
"It was a big misunderstanding. There was not a helicopter, nothing like that. There were no pedestrians in the area. They did me wrong. It was horrible. I felt, man, this was not good," Sellers said. "There are bigger crimes out there then messing with me on a dirt bike."
Two days prior to his arrest, Sellers was hitting baseballs with a friend, the son of a West Sacramento police officer. Through that friend, Sellers was able to participate in a ride-along and was introduced to 10 officers, many of whom were Giants fans.
