TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Former Super Bowl champion and New York Giants running back Dion Lewis was arrested Monday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida.
Arrest documents show Lewis was taken into custody by Seminole Indian Police around 2 p.m. and booked into the Orient Road Jail of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office an hour later.
Lewis was charged with trespassing in an occupied structure. His bond was set at $500.
A spokesperson for the Seminole Police Department told Nexstar’s WFLA that Lewis was acting “unruly” and “belligerent,” including “causing a disturbance and refusing to leave the premises.”
Lewis joined the New York Giants in 2020 after spending two seasons with the Tenessee Titans. He also played for the New England Patriots from 2015-2018 and the Philadelphia Eagles from 2011-2013.
The Eagles originally drafted Lewis in the fifth round of the NFL Draft out of The University of Pittsburgh in 2011. In two seasons Lewis appeared in 24 games with two rushing touchdowns and 171 rushing yards.
Philadelphia traded Lewis to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Emmanuel Acho prior to the 2013 season.
