GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is apologizing to fans about a recent traffic stop.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says Jones was speeding on Hwy. 172 just outside Green Bay, Oct. 1. Dashcam video shows Jones performing three field sobriety tests.

The State Patrol says Jones had been speeding and did not have a valid license. Troopers say he also admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day.

Jones reacted to the citations on Tuesday.

"I owe an apology to my family, teammates, coaches, the fans and the Packers organization," Jones said. "I made a mistake and I'll take full responsibility for it and it won't happen again. I can't speak on it because it's an ongoing legal matter."

Jones entered a written not guilty plea last week. He's expected back in court in February.
