NFL's Dion Lewis Threatened To Spit In Cop's Face Before Arrest, Police Say
Before Dion Lewis was hauled off to jail last week, he allegedly called cops “p***ies” and threatened to spit on an officer — this according to new court documents, obtained by TMZ Sports.
In the docs, Seminole Police Dept. officers say they were called out to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa in Florida at around 2 PM on Sept. 18 after venue security claimed Lewis was being “unruly.”
Cops say the former New England Patriots running back was told he had to leave the property … and was escorted out to valet where authorities said they allowed him to either cab it or Uber it away from the premises without further repercussions.
But, according to the docs, “Lewis became belligerent in front of other casino patrons, calling officers ‘p***ies,’ and advising he was not leaving property because he did nothing wrong.”
He then allegedly said he’d spit in a sergeant’s face “if he touched him.”
