Lamar Jackson apologized Wednesday night shortly after an Instagram video of the Baltimore Ravens quarterback driving 105 mph without a seat belt went viral.

TMZ Sports shared the video the 22-year-old rookie posted to his Instagram story. The video shows arrows pointing to the speedometer and to the seat belt icon on the dashboard of Jackson’s car. The clip has since been removed.

“I made a bad decision and will set a better example going forward,” Jackson tweeted Wednesday evening, adding the hashtag “#Myapologies.”

The Ravens have not yet officially issued a statement on the incident involving Jackson, although they likely will soon. Baltimore selected the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner as a first-round pick (No. 32) out of Louisville last year. In college, Jackson was also named a two-time ACC Player of the Year and a two-time ACC Offensive Player of the Year.

Fans on Twitter responded to the video of Jackson with all sorts of GIFs and funny videos filled with funny references.
