Dion Lewis gets felony charge of falsely reporting a fire

The guess here is Dion Lewis will not choose to be a guest again at a Hampton Inn anytime soon.

Lewis, the Philadelphia Eagles running back, was arrested Saturday morning and along with his older brother Lamar was charged with falsely reporting a fire, a felony, and misdemeanor reckless endangerment.

According to the Alabay Times Union, Lewis was back in Albany, N.Y., and was a guest at the hotel. But at about 4 a.m. he and his brother were locked out of the property. They banged on the glass doors and eventually pulled the fire alarm. According to police, both men were drunk at the time.

The hotel locks the door at midnight and doesn’t admit anyone that does not have a key.
