St. Louis Rams' VP of football operations Kevin Demoff has reportedly denied issuing an apology to the city's police department Monday for the "hands up, don't shoot" pose made by several Rams' players the day before — despite earlier claims from a police chief that he did.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar sent a staff email Monday evening saying Demoff called him to apologize for the players' apparent on-field Ferguson salute.
But, according to Demoff, the police chief misinterpreted the conversation.
