Detroit Lions LB Trevor Bates arrested in NY

Detroit Lions linebacker Trevor Bates is seen during the second half of an NFL football game against the Cleveland Browns in Detroit Michigan USA on Thursday

According to the NYPD, Bates was arrested around 3 a.m. for failure to pay a cab fare in front of the Hampton Inn Hotel.

Detroit Lions linebacker Trevor Bates was arrested in Queens after he refused to pay a $32 cab fare Saturday morning and then attacked a police sergeant before being subdued with a Taser, according to the NYPD.

He also reportedly punched a police officer during the arrest. Sergeant O'Brien, meanwhile, was transported to a nearby Queens hospital for three stitches and concussion treatment. The prosecutor said Bates refused to be fingerprinted and became increasingly agitated.

The sergeant had been trying to calm Bates, who was irate in his holding pen, police sources said.

The sergeant was treated and released while Bates remained at Elmhurst Hospital to undergo a psych evaluation.




He will be charged with second-degree assault, obstructing governmental administration, theft of services and resisting arrest.

The 25-year-old National Football League player was reportedly extremely agitated during the 3 AM arrest and gave the officer a black eye because Bates "didn't like the people in the room" while he was being fingerprinted, the New York Post reported. "We have not spoken to Trevor as of yet and are still in the process of gathering more information".

He registered just one tackle for this Lions this season.

Bates, who was drafted in 2016 by the Indianapolis Colts, has bounced from practice squad to practice squad over the last three years.
