The Dallas Police Department has apologized to Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib after wrongly reporting that Talib was arrested Saturday night.

Maj. Max Geron, with Dallas police, sent multiple tweets about the Talib arrest, but after a conflicting report by NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk, Geron issued a correction.

Geron tweeted: "My apogies to Aqib Talib. Original Information reported was incorrect."

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the man arrested was Talib's brother.

Geron identified Yaqub Talib, 31, as the man arrested on suspicion of public intoxication.

Here is a report by the Dallas Morning News.
