TAMPA, Florida — Super Bowl champion and former NFL running back Dion Lewis was arrested Monday in Tampa. 

The 32-year-old was said to be "belligerent" after "causing a disturbance and refusing to leave" the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, CBS News Boston reports. 

Seminole Indian Police arrested Lewis just after 2 p.m. Monday and booked him into Hillsborough County's Orient Road Jail. He was charged with trespassing in an occupied structure or conveyance. 

Arrest records show that the former NFL player posted a $500 bond and was released just before midnight on Monday.

Lewis was first drafted in 2011 as a fifth-round pick by Philadelphia, where he played sparingly in his first two seasons, according to the NFL. A short time later, the running back battled a serious leg injury as he moved from Cleveland to New England. 

After overcoming an ACL tear, Lewis helped earn the Tom Brady-led Patriots the Super Bowl LI title — the year New England famously made a fourth-quarter comeback to win over the Atlanta Falcons.
