“Regardless of the outcome of the pending investigation, I would like my friends, family and fans to know that I do not condone drinking and driving in any way whatsoever,” Young said. “I am very disappointed in myself and am so sorry for any conduct that has made this legal process necessary. I specifically want to apologize to the young men and women who look up to me as a role model and to my employers at the University of Texas and the Longhorn Network. Please let this be a lesson to you all and a moment for you to learn from.”
