Scrambling for a wallet in the woman's hair?

Amazing the excuses these men come up with. I suppose it's a little more original than 'I was drunk and can't remember'.

His lawyer said Miyazaki claimed he was scrambling for a wallet with the woman but did not pull her hair, adding Miyazaki was showing regret over the incident.

Showing regret for something he didn't do. OK.

""It would be extremely regrettable if there indeed was violence by a player who has been a leading figure in Japanese handball, someone who has to set an example for those younger,"

My alma mater, could you help an arrested ex Japan handball player in denial ; to set an example for those younger,? I'm a leading figure in Japanese handball.

The 39-year-old Miyazaki, who played for Alcobendas in Spain...

How ironic! It seems like an alcobenda might have contributed to his bad behaviour.

Scrambling for a wallet in the woman's hair?

At least he seemingly remembers exactly what he was doing, unlike the average drunken arrestee.

Was the wallet on top of the woman's head?

Doesn't sound like much of an "assault".   A handball superstar like him should be ok.  Even though he regrets it.
