Former Panther Dion Lewis Arrested

While it isn't nearly on the level of Jabaal Sheard throwing a guy through an art gallery window, there's yet another case of a former Panther getting in trouble with the police.

Former Pitt standout RB Dion Lewis was arrested over the weekend for falsely reporting a fire, which is a felony. He also faces misdemeanor charges for reckless endangerment.

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.

I can't exactly blame Dion. Why is a hotel lobby locked after midnight and you have to use a key card to get in? That's a little absurd in my opinion.

Look, I get it. People do stupid things from time to time, like losing your guest room card and then pulling a fire alarm to get inside. He won't get jail time and it's doubtful he'd get any sort of suspension from the NFL for this one, but having any sort of altercation with the police doesn't exactly put Dion in a good light.
