“…(the men) proceeded to strike the lobby’s sliding glass doors “with such force as to rock them and nearly break them from their hinges…they then pulled the fire alarm outside the hotel’s lobby, resulting in their arrest on charges of falsely reporting a fire, a felony, and reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor…”
In the wee hours of Saturday morning, Lewis and his brother, Lamar, found themselves locked out of a hotel in downtown Albany, N.Y. They were intoxicated, according to police, and apparently forgot their room key. Eagles running back Dion Lewis found himself in some trouble over the weekend.
“I want to apologize to my family, the Albany community, the Eagles organization and fans, and to the NFL for my involvement in an incident this past weekend,” Lewis said in a team-issued statement “It was never my intention to cause any public alarm or damage any property. I am sorry for any embarrassment and inconvenience that my actions have caused.”
The 21-year-old Lewis, whom the Eagles selected in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL draft, was released after his arraignment in court. His brother was being held in jail because of two previous felony charges, the Times Union reported.
