Cowboys CB Bryan McCann was arrested by Dallas police Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication. The news was first reported by WFAA-TV in Dallas.

An undrafted rookie in 2010 from SMU, McCann was taken to a Dallas detox center around 3 a.m. on Saturday and released eight hours later. Details of the arrest were not made available by the Dallas police department.

In a statement released through his agent, McCann denied the charge.

"To my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and all Dallas Cowboy & SMU fans," the statement begins. "My good name and reputation mean everything to me. I have never been arrested before and take pride in conducting myself at all times in a responsible and respectful manner off the football field. I was not intoxicated and did not pose a danger to myself or others.

"I am very grateful that, due to the Constitution and Americans' strong and enduring belief in due process, I am presumed innocent of this public intoxication charge because I am innocent. I look forward to vigorously defending myself in a court of law. I thank you for your continued support."

McCann played in nine games for the Cowboys in '10, returning an interception for a touchdown while also averaging 22.0 yards on kickoff returns and 20.6 yards on punt returns, bringing one back for a score.
