Former Detroit Lion Ronnell Lewis arrested on suspicion of DUI

After being released during the final round of cuts by the Detroit Lions, former fourth round draft pick Ronnell Lewis has been arrested for the second time in five months.

 According to KOKI-TV in Tulsa, Lewis was arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of DUI in Henryetta, Oklahoma.

The arrest report shows Lewis was stopped after an officer saw his truck cross the center line at 1:54 on Labor Day morning on Main Street in Henryetta. That's when the arresting officer smelled alcohol and noticed a 6-pack with a beer missing inside the truck.

“Did some standardized field sobriety tests on him. In the officer's opinion he failed those. Subsequently, he was arrested, transported. Had blood drawn and was booked into the county jail for one misdemeanor count of DUI,” said Chief Steven Norman.

Lewis' agent sent the following statement to KOKI: "This past holiday weekend, Ronnell Lewis was involved in a routine traffic stop that occurred in Okmulgee county. Ronnell cooperated with authorities to the best of his ability while maintaining his innocence. Ronnell has not been charged with anything at this time."

Back in April, Lewis had a brush with the law when he was booked for charges of disturbing the peace and public intoxication stemming from a bar fight.

If Lewis had any future in the NFL he's quickly flushing it down the toilet. He better get his act together fast and gain some team's trust before he washes out completely.
