Lions DE Ronnell Lewis Tasered by police in alleged bar fight
Lions defensive end Ronnell Lewis was Tasered over the weekend and arrested on three misdemeanor charges for his role in an alleged bar fight in Norman, Okla., police said Tuesday.
According to the reports, Lewis was thrown out of the bar for fighting with another man, and the fight continued outside. Once officers arrived, Lewis failed to comply with commands to stop fighting and police Tased both men involved in the altercation.
The Lions, meanwhile, issued their well-worn statement on players who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
"We are aware of the incident involving Ronnell Lewis. We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time."
(In related news, the Browns' Desmond Bryant has nothing to worry about -- he still holds the record for "More Ridiculous Mugshot Ever.")
Lewis was a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2012. He appeared in eight games last season and registered two tackles.
