Eagles RB Lewis arrested

Eagles running back Dion Lewis was arrested in Albany, New York early Sunday morning with his older brother, Lamar Lewis, after allegedly banging on the locked glass doors at the Hampton Inn and then pulling the fire alarm.

Both men were charged with falsely reporting an incident, which is classified as a felony, and misdemeanor reckless endangerment of property.

Police indicated that Lewis was intoxicated when officers arrived on scene but was cooperative.

"I want to apologize to my family, the Albany community, the Eagles organization and fans, and to the NFL for my involvement in an incident this past weekend," Lewis said in a statement released by the team. "It was never my intention to cause any public alarm or damage any property. I am sorry for any embarrassment and inconvenience that my actions have caused.

"I am committed to continuing to conduct myself in conformance with the high moral, ethical and professional standards that I have my entire life and of which so many others rightly expect of me. Because the matter is still in the hands of the court system, I cannot comment any further."
