Dodgers first baseman James Loney spoke publicly on Friday night for the first time since news broke of a traffic accident last month in which he was briefly detained on suspicion of driving under the influence. Loney says he wasn't under the influence of alcohol or any other drug when the 2009 Maserati he was driving reportedly collided with multiple cars on the Westbound 101 Freeway in Los Angeles. "I decided to personally make a statement because nothing is more important to me than young fans, and I want them to hear this directly from me," Loney said. "I would never do anything to jeopardize my career. I have been working really hard to help this team next year, and I am looking forward to a great season." The incident took place on Nov. 14. Loney said he remembers colliding with the first car and hitting his head in the process, but he doesn't have a clear memory of what happened from that moment until he woke up several hours later in the hospital. "After (hitting his head), everything became very fuzzy," Loney said. "I just felt, like, different. It was a different feeling."
