Geno Hayes LB Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Geno Hayes, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting WLB who is currently third on the team in tackles, was arrested early this morning out late celebrating the Bucs victory over the Washington Redskins. During the game he had 1 tackle and 2 assists, as well as a sack. During the celebration at night, he finished with 2 charges, one of disorderly conduct and one of trespassing.

It started when Hayes was inside of the night club, Blue Martini, and a friend tried to enter but was turned away because he wasn't properly dressed. Hayes then pushed a police officer to the side and stood between him and the friend. They told Hayes that he could enter the club again, and he allegedly didn't move and "making derogatory statements and menacingly staring at the lounge security personnel and police." He was then escorted out of the club to the parking lot and told not to return. Which of course, he did.

10 minutes later he returned claiming that he had left his credit card in the building, and police and security personnel told him to sit elsewhere and wait while his friend retrieved it., however he didn't leave. Instead, he stood by the entrance and  "assumed an aggressive stance, acted combative and refused to leave the establishment," and "was loud, verbally abusive and made threats to myself and staff from the club." Officers threatened to use a stun gun if he persisted, and then they were forced to, however his clothes were too bulky and it wasn't affective. The cop was then forced to tackle Hayes and bring him into custody.

Edit: What Hayes was overheard yelling at officers was, "Bitch Ass cop. You ain't gonna do nothing. I ain't leaving. I don't have to leave."

Hayes was arrested for a night club incident at Florida State as well, before being a 6th round pick by the Buccaneers. There police were checking a bar for underage patrons, and they noticed Hayes waving his arms and screaming profanities. They tried to talk to him about what was going on, and he became aggressive, and friends tried to calm him down and pull him away. Then police tried to arrest him and he resisted, forcing the police to use a taser on him during this incident also.  A teammate, FB Joe Surratt, punched a cop who pushed him away for interfering with the arrest.  Hayes was charged with assault on an officer, resisting arrest without violence, and  disorderly conduct.
