I owe the fan from last nights incident an apology. I realize my actions were uncalled for and that as players we are held to a higher standard and the chirping from fans is apart of todays game. I hope he can forigve me.

With that being said, I’m a human that makes mistakes. I will continue to grow and learn from any and all mistake I make and appreciate everyone’s support while doing so.

Again, I sincerely apologize to last nights fan and all fans who were around. This is a beautiful game that we share, as fans and as players. let’s continue to cherish our beautiful game together

Garrett is appealing the suspension that was set to begin on August 15, thus it will not begin until the appeal process is complete.
