Police use stun gun to subdue Bucs' Geno Hayes
Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Geno Hayes had to be subdued with a stun gun before officers arrested him Monday morning at a Tampa nightclub.
According to the Tampa Tribune, Hayes was charged with two misdemeanors – disorderly conduct and trespassing – after 2 a.m. at Blue Martini, a popular nightspot. Hayes was reportedly told to leave the club and was verbally abusive and made threats as he left. When he returned, an officer ordered him to leave and when he didn’t he was stunned with a Taser gun.
Hayes was released at 5 a.m. after posting $750 bail. This is the third arrest in two months for the Bucs, according to the report. It’s also the second go-round for Hayes with a stun gun. When he was at Florida State in 2007, he had to be subdued outside a Tallahassee nightclub by police.
