Rams outside linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar knew the question was coming. But he really couldn’t answer it.

“I can’t say much, just because it’s a legal issue,’’ he said Friday after being asked about last weekend’s arrest following a fight outside a Miami Beach nightclub. “It’s unfortunate, but the legal issue has to take care of its due proccess first before I can speak on the matter. I apologize, but that’s kind of the way the system works.’’

Dunbar, 29, was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge early Sunday for his role in a fight that included NBA player Donte Greene and Greene’s brother, Dmetrique. Donte Green was charged with battery and had to be subdued with a taser by Miami Beach police when he allegedly struck Dunbar from behind in the head and neck area.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher is withholding judgment on Dunbar’s latest off-field issue.

“We are gathering facts as we always do,’’ the coach said. “I have spoken to Jo-Lonn. It appears that it was not what it was presented to be. At this point, I’m hoping that the investigation, the legal system will prove that it was more of a self-defense issue than it was something where he was the aggressor.’’

At this point, Dunbar is happy to be in camp and looking to move forward.

“I’ve spoke to Coach and everybody internally from the top down and just explained the situation and the circumstances,’’ Dunbar said. “They have a clear understanding. ... It’s unfortunate, but hopefully we can just get past it and move on.’’

Dunbar signed with the Rams in April 2012 and posted career bests in tackles (115) sacks (4½) and interceptions (two) that fall.
