Detroit Lions LB Trevor Bates Arrested for Stiffing Cab Driver … Then Punches Cop!!!

A relatively unknown NFL linebacker just made a name for himself in the worst way … by allegedly flying off the handle and punching a cop in the face!

According to law enforcement sources … Lions LB Trevor Bates was arrested around 3 AM Saturday morning at a Hampton Inn in Queens, NY for refusing to pay his cab fare. Cops were called to the hotel and took him into custody for theft of services.

We’re told while he was at the local station preparing for fingerprinting, Bates became irate and declared he didn’t like one of the officers in the room. He then allegedly punched a sergeant … causing a laceration above the cop’s left eye.

Our sources say the sergeant received 3 stitches and was treated for a concussion at the hospital before being released.

Bates was taken to the hospital, as well, for a psych eval. We’re told he has not formally been charged yet for assaulting an officer.

The linebacker played in 9 games this season for Detroit, recording one solo tackle.

Roger Stone Arrested in FBI Raid on Florida Home

Roger Stone ain’t having a TGIF kinda day — FBI agents pounded on his door before sunrise and arrested President Trump‘s ex-campaign adviser.

Stone was arrested around 6 AM Friday at his house in Fort Lauderdale after being indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller. Armed agents in bulletproof vests surrounded Stone’s home and hauled him off … reportedly in his pajamas. His apartment in Manhattan was also raided.

Stone’s been charged with 7 counts — 5 counts of false statements, one count of witness tampering and one count of obstruction of an official proceeding. 

As you know, Mueller’s team has been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, and Stone has previously acknowledged communicating with Guccifer 2.0 during the campaign, who intelligence officials believe was a Twitter account operated by Russia to hack Democratic emails.

Stone’s also been linked to WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, who he publicly praised after the hacked emails were released. Stone’s denied any contact with Russia or WikiLeaks since the election.

Stone’s arrest isn’t entirely a surprise — especially to him … he said in May he was prepared to be indicted, and claimed Mueller might do it in an effort to silence him.

If you’re keeping track, this makes 5 associates of the Prez who have been busted by Mueller … following Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos. His former lawyer, Michael Cohen, separately pled guilty to tax evasion and campaign finance violations.

Stone’s expected to be arraigned Friday in federal court in Ft. Lauderdale.

‘Teen Mom’ Star Ryan Edwards Arrested Again Skipping Out on Bar Bill

Troubled ‘Teen Mom’ star Ryan Edwards was arrested over a whiskey bill.

According to police documents, obtained by TMZ, Edwards was at Bud’s bar in Hamilton County, Tennessee where he ordered 6 Jack Daniel’s whiskey, raking up a bill of $ 36 and then walking out without forking over the money.

The bartender called the cops and recognized his face from photos in the Criminal Justice Portal. His mug was there because he’s been arrested multiple times before, for drug possession and other offenses.

Police located Edwards and arrested him for Theft of Services Under $ 1,000.

According to cops, Edwards was in the bar from noon till 4 PM, when he left.

The incident went down last month, but he was arrested Wednesday.

He is still in custody.

Saints’ P.J. Williams Arrested for Drunk Driving … In New Orleans

Exclusive Details

6:48 AM PT — Officials tell TMZ Sports … Williams was initially pulled over for going 80 in a 50 on the Crescent City Connection Bridge. 

During the stop, cops suspected he was intoxicated and tried to administer a breath test but Williams refused … so he was arrested. 

We’re told he was booked for driving while intoxicated, speeding, improper lane usage and failure to use a turn signal. A bad week just got worse for New Orleans Saints cornerback P.J. Williams — who was arrested early Wednesday morning when cops say he was driving drunk in the Big Easy. 

The 25-year-old — a key player on the Saints defense — was booked for drunk driving and careless driving at 1:10 AM, according to The Advocate.

After posing for a mug shot, Williams was released roughly 3 hours after his arrest. We’re working on the details. 

It’s not the first time Williams has been arrested for drunk driving — he was popped for DUI in Florida back in 2015 but the case was thrown out because police dash cam video failed to capture key moments from that arrest. 

Williams was a stud back in college where he helped Florida State win the national championship playing with Jameis Winston back in 2013. 

He later entered the NFL Draft in 2015 where he was selected by the Saints in the 3rd round. 

Since turning pro, he’s been a pretty solid player — even picking off Kirk Cousins for a Pick 6 in the Week 8 battle this season against the Minnesota Vikings. 

Williams played in 15 games in 2018 for the Saints — posting 53 tackles, 1 interception and 1 sack. 

He started in the NFC championship game against the L.A. Rams last weekend — and had 8 tackles and broke up 1 pass in the 26 to 23 loss.
