Eagles Dion Lewis’ Arrest Video Shows He Might Have Been the Victim at Hampton Inn

There are a couple of things that are bothersome to me about what you are about to see. Originally when Dion Lewis was arrested it was said that he and his brother pulled a fire alarm at the Hampton Inn when they forgot their hotel key and couldn’t get back in the building.

That is actually false, no fire alarm was ever pulled.  The truth looks like that it is just two guys who are generally just trying to get back in their hotel room. Here are the 911 call and arrest video take a look.

I don’t want to say that the hotel manager overreacted, because as we all know there are crazy people in this world, but are Lewis and his brother acting like criminals in the video? If I am going to break into a hotel am I just going to chill and give them time to call the police?

Furthermore there is no knife, but who comes to rob a hotel with a lock door with a knife?

As far as the police, they didn’t really give Lewis or his brother any time to say anything. There was no aggressive moves made by Lewis or his brother to really warrant a gun being put to their head and being pepper sprayed. I believe that was excessive behavior.

No wonder the DA dropped the charges, maybe we need some more video on the Super Cops.

Eagles Dion Lewis Arrested For Being Drunk And Pulling Fire Alarm at Hampton Inn

Must have been the weekend for running backs to get arrested for unusual things. You know all about the Adrian Peterson arrest, but Lewis’ is even more bizarre.

According to Bryan Fitzgerald of the Albany Times-Union, Eagles running back Dion Lewis and his older brother were arrested early Saturday after allegedly banging on the locked doors to a hotel lobby and eventually pulling a fire alarm.

Lewis is charged with a felony count of falsely reporting a fire. He also faces misdemeanor reckless endangerment charges.

Lewis was a guest at the Hampton Inn in Albany, where the doors to the lobby are locked at midnight and only a guest key can secure admission. Both men reportedly were intoxicated at the time.

Florio from PFT.com says we shouldn’t question why this is a felon charge, but considering some of the crimes that are misdemeanors in this country, it seems absurd that this would be considered a felony.

Dumb yes, something to get arrested for no.

As someone who has left their key in their room and had to beg to get back into a hotel late at night, I can understand their frustrations. Pulling the fire alarm very childish, but not arrest worthy.
