Ryan Malone Discusses His DUI Charge

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

“I’d like to publicly apologize to Mr. Vinik and the Tampa organization,” Malone said, referencing club owner Jeff Vinik. “They’re a first-class organization, Mr. Vinik has done so much for the community there. I obviously wish them the best.

“The fans were great, so I want to say thanks to them for their continued support.”

Malone pleaded no-contest to the DUI charge and agreed to a pre-trial diversion program on the drug charge. The cocaine possession felony charge will be dismissed if Malone successfully completes the program that includes community service.

Malone, who was placed in Stage Two of the NHL/NHLPA Behavioral Health program upon his arrest, said he was reinstated “a few days ago” by the program’s physicians.

“Obviously I made a mistake, and I obviously have to admit that,” Malone said. “Thankfully, luckily, no one got hurt. It’s changed my life for the better and my family’s life.

“I’m looking to prove myself, looking to show what kind of a person I am on and off the ice.”
