Eagles’ Dion Lewis Arrested For Pulling Fire Alarm After Being Locked Out of Hotel


Eagles' Dion Lewis Arrested For Pulling Fire Alarm After Being Locked Out of HotelAs Dion Lewis knows, nothing is worse than getting locked out of your hotel late at night.

But, as Lewis apparently doesn't know, pulling the fire alarm is not the best way to try and get back in, according to ESPN.

The Philadelphia Eagles running back and his brother, Lamar Lewis, were arrested early Saturday morning after pulling the fire alarm at an Albany, N.Y. area hotel where they were staying.

The Lewis brothers found themselves locked out of the hotel when they returned after a late night out. While the hotel's lobby doors locked at midnight, any guest could still enter the building with their key — something the brothers were apparently unaware of. When they returned and found themselves unable to get back into the building, the brothers, who were intoxicated at the time of the incident, panicked and began banging on the doors. When no one responded, they pulled the fire alarm.

Lewis quickly discovered this wasn't the best way to handle the situation, as both he and his brother were arrested and charged with falsely reporting a fire, a felony, and misdemeanor reckless endangerment.

Lewis later released a statement apologizing for his actions.
