Charges for felony falsely reporting a fire and misdemeanor reckless endangerment against Philadelphia Eagles running back Dion Lewis and his brother will be dropped in six months if the two “stay out of trouble”. But what’s interesting about all of this is that the fire alarm was never pulled.
Add he fact that 911 calls never mentioned a fire alarm being pulled and then you’re left scratching your head.
But the 911 calls do shed light on is employees at that Hampton in on July 8th felt the brothers to be armed with a knife and attempting to break into the hotel. And when police arrive, they treat the brothers as such. All the while, the duo seems to be surprised by it all.
Dion and Lamar Lewis were both charged with felony falsely reporting a fire and misdemeanor reckless endangerment on July 8 after an incident at the Hampton Inn on Chapel Street. Police said the brothers tried to knock down the glass doors to the hotel’s lobby and then pulled a fire alarm after they were not allowed back inside by hotel security.
On Monday, David Gonzalez, the Albany County assistant district attorney who handled the case, said that the fire alarm was never pulled, but rather the clear plastic case that protects the fire alarm was jostled. That triggered a different alarm that hotel staff described as the fire alarm, Gonzalez said.
Here’s the 911 call:
