TAMPA, Fla. -- The president of the Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Pete Times Forum was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of drunken driving.

Ron Campbell was pulled over at 1:10 a.m. and refused to take a Breathalyzer test. He was booked into the county jail for allegedly driving under the influence and released about 9:30 a.m. after posting bail.

Campbell released a statement through team spokesman Bill Wickett saying he was sorry and that the experience was humbling.

Telephone calls to the Tampa Police were not immediately returned Saturday night.
