Ray Lewis: ‘My clothes were too expensive to murder anyone, so I took them off’

USP NFL: NEW YORK GIANTS AT DETROIT LIONS S FBN USA MIRay Lewis opened up for the first time about his role in a 2000 Atlanta murder in a recently ghost-written autobiography. The Hall of Fame linebacker, two-time super bowl champion, and current ESPN analyst devotes an entire chapter to the incident that saw him charged, but ultimately found not guilty, of the murder of two individuals in a club during Super Bowl weekend.

According to police reports, Lewis and several members of his entourage engaged in a fight with two individuals who were ultimately stabbed and killed by either Lewis or a member of his entourage. Despite giving a false statement to police, Lewis was found not guilty. Joseph Sweeting and Reginald Oakley, friends of Lewis, were acquitted of murder and assault charges.

Of the incident, Lewis wrote he never would have murdered someone while wearing such expensive clothes.
