Woman says charges with UGA's Evans misconstrued

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The 28-year-old woman arrested with University of Georgia athletic director Damon Evans said the charges are a "misunderstanding."

Courtney Fuhrmann said Friday that disorderly conduct charges against her are a "misunderstanding from what the media is portraying it as" but declined to speak further.

Fuhrmann and Evans were arrested late Wednesday after a state trooper said he spotted Evans driving erratically.

He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane. She was charged with disorderly conduct after police said she ignored warnings to stay inside the vehicle while the trooper was conducting the test.

Evans apologized Thursday and said he "failed miserably." He said Fuhrmann was a friend.
