The 28-year-old was accused of firing gunshots in the garage of his Miami-area home after an argument with his girlfriend in October. He was also accused of choking her and pushing her against the wall, according to police reports.
No arrests were made in the incident, as police decided against filing charges.
“I want to be clear, I didn’t harm my girlfriend [but] I should have used better judgment,” Chapman said on Tuesday.
The Cincinnati Reds traded Chapman to the Yankees in December.
