VIDEO: Michael Brown's Stepfather Sorry for Outburst in Ferguson Protests

Michael Brown's stepfather says he's sorry for his emotional outburst to demonstrators after learning Officer Darren Wilson wouldn't be indicted in the teen's death. But he says he's unfairly taking heat for the rioting that followed, reports CNN.

Despite Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson's assertion that police are investigating whether Louis Head intended to incite a riot with his words, law enforcement sources told CNN that Head is unlikely to be prosecuted.

Head said Wednesday that "emotions got the best of me" on the night of November 24 in Ferguson, Mo., when he yelled "Burn this motherf---er down!" and "Burn this bitch down!"

"I was so angry and full of raw emotions, as so many others were, and granted, I screamed out words that I shouldn't have screamed in the heat of the moment," he said in a statement obtained exclusively by CNN's Don Lemon. "It was wrong, and I humbly apologize to all of those who read my pain and anger as a true desire for what I want for our community."
