Dion Lewis of the Eagles Arrested For Falsely Reporting a Fire By Pulling Fire Alarm

Dion Lewis Police mug shot taken early Saturday morning July 8, 2012. Dion was arrested after banging on the locked glass doors to a hotel lobby and pulling on a fire alarm, police said. Dion is the former Albany Academy football player who now plays with the Philadelphia Eagles. (Albany Police) / ALDion Lewis, a backup running back with the Philadelphia Eagles, was arrested over the weekend in Albany. According to the Albany Times-Union, Lewis and his older brother were staying at the Hampton Inn but were locked out when they tried to get into the hotel at 4 a.m. Apparently the pair did not have a key card to gain entry at that hour, even though they were guests at the hotel. As a result, the men started banging on the locked sliding glass doors at the hotel entrance, and then pulled the fire alarm in an attempt to gain someone’s attention.

Oops.

Lewis has been charged with a felony of falsely reporting a fire and with misdemeanor reckless endangerment.
