Detroit Lions reserve defensive end Ronnell Lewis was arrested this past Saturday on three misdemeanor charges after an altercation at a bar in Norman, Okla., reports Jake Trotter of ESPN Sooner Nation.
“We are aware of the incident involving Ronnell Lewis,” the Lions said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.”
Lewis, 22, got into the altercation early Saturday morning at Logan’s on the Corner, located in Norman’s Campus Corner entertainment district.
Lewis was tasered by an officer when the fight spilled outside the bar and he refused officers orders to stop fighting.
Police booked Lewis on complaints of disturbing the peace, public intoxication and interfering with official procedure.
Lewis was a fourth-round draft pick by the Lions last year. He appeared in eight games, mostly on special teams, with two tackles.
Last month, safety Amari Spievey was arrested in Connecticut following a dispute with his girlfriend. Spievey was charged with assault, misdemeanor risk of injury to a child and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Spievey entered a family counseling program and all charges are expected to be dropped.
