Detroit Lions’ Ronnell Lewis faces misdemeanors

Detroit Lions linebacker Ronnell Lewis faces three misdemeanor

charges following his arrest during an altercation at an Oklahoma


Norman police records show that the 22-year-old Lewis was

arrested early Saturday morning and charged with public

intoxication, disturbing the peace and interference with a law

enforcement officer.

Lewis played eight games for the Lions last season after being

picked in the fourth round of the NFL draft out of Oklahoma. He was

credited with two tackles.

The Lions issued a statement Tuesday saying the club was aware

of Lewis’ arrest and is in the process of gathering more

information. The team had no further comment.
