Robert Nkemdiche says he was drinking the night he fell out of an Atlanta hotel room window.

"I was drinking," Nkemdiche said during a press conference at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. "I was drunk, and it happened."

Nkemdiche was charged with marijuana possession following the December incident. Nkemdiche denied being under the influence of any drugs. 

When asked why he was charged despite his denial of drug use, Nkemdiche said, "There was more people in my room. The hotel was under my name, and nobody wanted to take the fall. So it had to go under my name."

Nkemdiche said Ole Miss teammate Laremy Tunsil was in the hotel room. Tunsil could potentially be the number one overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
