NBC Philadelphia – A night out in his hometown ended in Dion Lewis’ arrest after he and his brother allegedly pulled a fire alarm at an Albany, N.Y. hotel.
Here is what led to the Sunday morning arrest of the Eagles running back and kick returner on falsely reporting a fire and reckless endangerment charges, according to Albany Police Public Information Officer Steve Smith.
After a night out on the town, Lewis, 21, and his brother Lamar were returning to Dion’s room at a Hampton Inn around 4:40 a.m. when they got locked out of the sliding glass doors to the hotel lobby. The men allegedly tried banging on the doors but no one heard them, Smith told NBC10.
Both the Eagles running back and kick returner and his older brother intoxicated at the time, police said.
At some point one of the brothers allegedly pulled the fire alarm, cops said.
The brothers were arrested without incident and Dion was arraigned on the charges (the false report charge is a low level felony) Sunday and was released on his own recognizance. His brother Lamar was later released on bail, Smith said.
