OSLO, Norway (AP) — Former Denmark international Niklas Bendtner has apologized for an episode over the weekend in which a cab driver in Copenhagen reportedly broke his jaw.
The Rosenborg forward says he had been "involved in a very unpleasant situation at around 2 a.m. Sunday. I am of course extremely sorry about that the outcome."
Bendtner's lawyer told Danish media that his client is innocent of any wrongdoing. The cab company says it has handed a video of the episode over to the police.
Bendtner's girlfriend said on Instagram that the player had acted in self-defense after a quarrel over the fare.
