Former Pitt running back Dion Lewis, who is currently with the Philadelphia Eagles, has been charged with a felony for falsely reporting a fire and with a misdemeanor for reckless endangerment.â†µ
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 ...â†µ
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.â†µ
This sounds a little silly, and it doesn't seem likely that Lewis will be convicted of a felony in the end, but pulling a fire alarm in a hotel after midnight really isn't a nice thing to do, and it shows poor judgment.â†µ
