JL.jpgRavens Super Bowl Hero and former Maryland Terrapin, Jermaine Lewis, has seen better days. The one time Pro-Bowler, who returned a kickoff for 84 yards in the Ravens 2001 Super Bowl victory, was arrested in his Baltimore County home earlier this week. Police say witnesses saw Lewis run over a sign and drive erratically, almost causing an accident. When police arrived at his home a woman answered the door. When she went inside to speak with Lewis the Baltimore County police officer heard an argument. Upon entering the residence, the police officer found Lewis on his couch with his pants halfway to his knees. The Baltimore County officer noticed that Lewis smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot. The officer asked Lewis to get off of the couch and he refused. When the police officer attempted to put handcuffs of Lewis he resisted and was eventually tased after several warnings.

One would expect from the facts that Lewis would be charged with a DUI. However, because police could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Jermaine did not drink alcohol at his house before they arrived the drinking and driving charges could not be substantiated.
