Police used a stun gun on former Ravens wide receiver Jermaine Lewis and charged him with resisting arrest after a traffic accident Monday evening in Baltimore County.
An officer responding to calls about a Dodge Charger that was weaving on roads in the Reisterstown area and hit the Boring Volunteer Fire Department’s sign without stopping went to Lewis’ Reisterstown home, where the car was parked, according to Baltimore County charging documents.
The officer found Lewis lying on the couch with his shorts halfway down to his knees and noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from Lewis and that his eyes were bloodshot, charging documents state. The officer questioned Lewis about the crash and documents state Lewis responded that he had hit a sign but didn’t hurt anybody.
The officer grabbed Lewis’ arm to arrest him, but Lewis resisted being pulled off the couch even when the officer threatened to shock him with a stun gun. The officer shocked Lewis and moved him to the floor, where he complied with the officer’s order to remove his hands from underneath his body and was arrested.
A woman who was at the home told police that Lewis is the only one who drives the Charger, but it is usually parked because his license was revoked in 2008.
Lewis was charged with resisting arrest and cited for myriad traffic offenses. He was released on $50,000 bail, Batton said.
