TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Former Super Bowl champion and New York Giants running back Dion Lewis was arrested Monday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida.

Arrest documents show Lewis was taken into custody by Seminole Indian Police around 2 p.m. and booked into the Orient Road Jail of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office an hour later.

Lewis was charged with trespassing in an occupied structure. His bond was set at $500.

A spokesperson for the Seminole Police Department told Nexstar’s WFLA that Lewis was acting “unruly” and “belligerent,” including “causing a disturbance and refusing to leave the premises.”
