Nicklas Bendtner makes public apology after arrest
COPENHAGEN (REUTERS) - Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner issued a public apology on Saturday following his arrest in Britain on Thursday. Bendtner and his Sunderland team-mate Lee Cattermole were arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage to parked cars near Newcastle United's St James' Park stadium. The 23-year-old, who is on loan from Arsenal, was also involved in a recent incident in a Copenhagen pizzeria when his credit card was rejected. Bendtner released a statement to the Ekstra Bladet newspaper in Copenhagen in which he said he was 'sorry that I have let so many people down' and promised to end the 'extracurricular activities' that have got him in trouble.
