Warren Weir Apologize for His Behaviour Towards Police Officers
Jamaican Olympian Warren Weir decided to apologize for his behavior after coming under heavy fire on social media for a viral video showing the athlete arguing with members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
Weir decided to express his sincere apologies in his Instagram post after he accessed his actions and the comments of his family members, friends, and social media users.
The athlete wrote: “After careful consideration over the last few days and numerous discussion with my family and friends along with analyzing the feedback of many on social, I would like to apologize for my reaction to being stopped by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force for a routine search recently.
I do realize that while I may have been upset and while I may have felt targeted, this was not the best way to react to that situation.
This incident has given me the opportunity to look at how I can handle relations with the police differently in the future, and to also be mindful of how my post will affect not just my immediate friends and family, but also those who look up to and support me as an athlete, national representative, and entrepreneur.”
