I didnt know about a warrant that came about {in the first place|to begin with|to start with}. Clearly because I wasnt the person arrested. The head person [at the Cowboys] I told, {no one|nobody|no-one} backed me up. {No one|Nobody|No-one} had my back in {the whole|the complete|the entire} situation. I knew {about it|about any of it|about this} at what? 12. 45. By {2 .|repayments|-} 30 Im released… Lets not sugarcoat anything. I was {pretty much|just about|virtually} being called a liar.
