Former Georgetown Hoyas star Austin Freeman discussed his recent DUI citation for the first time since the incident happened early in the morning on June 25. In an interview at the Kenner League with Benjamin Standig of CSN Washington, Freeman very briefly admitted his mistake.
"It was a mistake. I'm not perfect," said a direct Freeman. "Just a mistake. It happens. Learn from it, become a better person from it."
Freeman was cited for seven different traffic violations, including DUI, after being pulled over in Prince George's County. It remains unclear what Freeman's punishment for the incident will be.
Freeman, along with several other current and former Georgetown players, was competing in the Kenner League, the annual summer league that's played on Georgetown's campus. He also said that he plans to play in Italy next season after not getting selected in the 2011 NBA Draft.
