I am embarrassed by the situation and apologize to my teammates and to the Red Sox organization for any distractions I may have caused. I still need to let the legal process run its course and until it does, I will not be able to make any further comment.

Jenks was arrested after being pulled over when officers in Lee County, Florida observed him driving his SUV erratically late at night. Failing a field sobriety test, Jenks informed the officers that he had taken too many muscle relaxers and fled from a local strip club after colliding with a pair of cars in the parking lot.

Jenks, who has been struggling to overcome a series of injuries since being signed to a two-year contract before the 2011 season, has a court appearance set for April 9.
