As the FBI continues to investigate fraud inside his truck-stop company, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam told fans he was embarrassed and planned to return glory to the football team, Sports Illustrated reports.

Speaking at the Northeastern Ohio Chapter of the National Football Foundation’s annual scholar-athlete banquet, Haslam expressed regrets over his legal troubles.

“I apologize to the city of Cleveland, Northeastern Ohio and all Browns fans because the last thing we ever wanted to do as a new owner was detract from football and the Browns and just what a great football area this is, and so I apologize for that,” Haslam said.

“We feel badly about it and we’re very comfortable we’ll work through this situation.”

Agents raided Pilot’s headquarters in Tennessee on April 16, alleging that members of the sales team boosted profits by deliberately withholding rebates, Sports Illustrated wrote.
