According to reports, Detroit Lions linebacker Trevor Bates refused to pay a taxi cab pill in New York. He was arrested for refusing to pay his tab.

Some point later, the reports suggest, Bates beat up an officer. While others say he punched an officer in the face.



The alleged incident happened in New York.

“We are aware of the arrest of Trevor Bates earlier today in New York,” Lions general manager Bob Quinn said in a statement. “We have not spoken to Trevor as of yet and are still in the process of gathering more information.

“The Detroit Lions will have no further comment at this time.”

Bates repeatedly didn’t like the sergeant and his officers during his booking process after his approx. 4 am arrest. According to the authorities, he punched the sergeant in the face.

He also refused to have his fingerprints taken during the booking process. This caused officers to send him to Elmhurst hospital, where he was urged to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

The 25-year-old Portland, Maine native played in nine games with the Lions in 2018.
