Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington spoke to reporters at the team’s training camp on Thursday and his recent arrest for improperly carrying a concealed weapon was the favored topic.

Washington is accused of reaching for and displaying a gun in front of police officers in the parking lot of a water park in Ohio and a video of the incident features an officer telling Washington that he’s lucky the situation didn’t escalate once he brandished the weapon. On Thursday, Washington said he was thankful things did not go that way and that he has “learned from my mistakes.”

“Probably just the environment that I go in,” Washington said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m young. Don’t make mistakes, just gotta learn from it.”

Bills coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane also expressed relief that no one was hurt during the incident and disappointment in Washington’s arrest, although they said the player has done a good job of communicating with them about what happened.

Washington pleaded not guilty to the charge and his attorney said he does not believe Washington committed any crime, something that Washington did not address while talking to the media.

    “I’m young”?
    That is his excuse?

    I think that I knew that it was a bad idea to pull a gun on a cop when I was 2, and that was WAY before they were into shooting everyone.

    Oh, those silly Bills!

  2. How is the I’m young defense going to fly here? Don’t we all know morals, ethics, and just plain and simple the right thing to do by age 11-12? And how do you plead not guilty? And why pull a gun on a police officer? I’m not understanding….but then again I have respect for law inforcement, in general…yesI know some are corrupt, no different than any other job…political official..etc…..
