Okeechobee County Sheriff Noel Stephen as well as Mackensie Alexander’s attorney, Brian Pakett, reacted to the positive outcome.
“Great results due to great team work! Thank you to each and every Agency, Department, group and individual who assisted us,” said Sheriff Stephen.
“Mackensie is absolutely thrilled and relieved and as is everybody involved in the entire Alexander family that the father was found well and safe,” said Pakett
Alexandre, who lives in Immokalee, was reported near that state park in Okeechobee County Monday night.
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Mackensie Alexander left the team training camp to assist in the search. He was then arrested in Collier County on a battery charge. Investigators say Mackensie Alexander, who left training camp to help in the search, was arrested on Tuesday. Detectives say Mackensie Alexander confronted the man who left his father behind while they were picking berries. Deputies say Mackensie Alexander and another man held the victim down and hit him, telling him they had a gun, after the man refused to get into their car.
Packett says his client is completely innocent.
“We dispute that there was ever an attack. We maintain that my client is innocent of all charges and we look forward to the truth coming out,” said Pakett.
WPBF 25 News has reached out to the Cincinnati Bengals for a comment, and to find out when Mackensie Alexander is returning to training camp, but we have not heard back at this time.
