Attorney Daniel Rosenberg, representing Shelby, said by phone that his client maintains his innocence and plans to plead not guilty.

Miami Dolphins' defensive end Derrick Shelby was arrested on Saturday morning at a nightclub in Fort Lauderdale.

The third-year defensive end for the Dolphins is charged with trespassing and resisting arrest without violence.  The police dept. said they aren't going to release an official report on the arrest until Monday.

"Derrick maintains his innocence," said Daniel Rosenberg, Shelby's Fort Lauderdale-based attorney. "There's a lot of conflicting information about his arrest."

According to a Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman, Shelby was "reportedly causing a disturbance at a club located at 111 Southwest 2nd Avenue" in Fort Lauderdale about 2 a.m. Oct. 4.

"Security officers employed at this establishment and uniform Fort Lauderdale Police Officers asked Shelby to leave the establishment and he refused," Detective DeAnna Greenlaw said in an email Sunday.

"He's going to plea[d] not guilty," Rosenberg said.

“I really think he made a mistake,” said Will Venant, a season ticket holder. “I mean, you know, a young kid, having fun and probably had too much to drink and made a mistake.  I think he’ll learn learn from things. Hopefully, he will learn from this and next time do better.”

Joining the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2012, Shelby has become a steady contributor on Miami’s defensive line.  He recorded two sacks in the Dolphins Week 4 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
