NFL Player Accepts Officer's Apology

DALLAS (AP) - The NFL player who was detained by a Dallas police
officer in a hospital parking lot while his mother-in-law was dying
inside says he accepts the officer's apology.

Houston Texans running back Ryan Moats also told ABC's "Good
Morning America" on Monday that he hopes Officer Robert Powell was
sincere in his apology issued publicly Friday over the March 18
incident.

Moats' wife, Tamishia, said on the news show that it would be comforting to hear the apology personally, but that she too would
definitely accept it.

Powell was placed on paid leave pending an internal investigation. The officer pulled out his gun and threatened Moats with jail as the player pleaded to go inside. Moats' mother-in-law died before he got there.
