I apologize to my fans, teammates and the Green Bay Packers for an improper decision that led to negative publicity this past weekend.— Jarrett Bush (@Jarrettbush) March 4, 2015
Bush was arrested for disorderly conduct under the influence in Vacaville, Calif., his hometown. Police declined to press charges.
Bush was at an Italian restaurant when a fight broke out. Police arrived and asked everyone inside to leave, but Bush refused. He was taken to the county jail and released "a short time later," police said.
The 30-year-old will become a free agent when the new league year begins next week. He was primarily a special teams player with the Packers.
In each of his nine seasons with the Packers, Bush has never appeared in fewer than 12 games, and in 137 career appearances he has recorded 96 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four fumble recoveries and four interceptions.
