NFL Player Punches Police Officer After Arrest

Trevor Bates

National Football League linebacker Trevor Bates, 25, was arrested early Saturday morning for attempting to skip-out on a cab fare.

Trevor Bates, a backup player for the Lions squad, was being booked for refusing to pay his cab fare at the 115th Precinct stationhouse in Jackson Heights when he suddenly refused to be fingerprinted around 4 a.m., cops said.

Officers apprehended Bates at a hotel and he was taken to a local police precinct.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn released a statement on Saturday.

The officer suffered a cut over his eye and a concussion, according to the paper. The prosecutor said Bates refused to be fingerprinted and became increasingly agitated. The situation got even worse when, after being taken in for processing, Bates allegedly punched an officer who was trying to help calm him down.

Bates was brought to NYC Health+Hospitals/Bellevue for a psychiatric evaluation, and faces up to seven years in jail if convicted.
