Lewand said in a statement released Saturday night that he is ``deeply sorry'' for his actions and takes ``full responsibility.''
Team spokesman Matt Barnhart confirmed Sunday that Lewand was arrested and released Friday night. Lewand was attending a charity golf event in Houghton Lake, about 150 miles northwest of Detroit.
Lewand also says that ``as a person in active recovery, I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.''
