Charges are pending against Detroit Lions reserve linebacker Trevor Bates, 25, in connection with the incident at a police station house in Queens.

The assault happened at the 115th St precinct in NY.

A late night in New York turned out to be trouble for a Detroit Lions player over the weekend, as third-year linebacker Trevor Bates has been charged with assault following an alleged confrontation with a New York Police Department sergeant.

A football player attacked an NYPD officer after he was arrested for refusing to pay his cab fare early Saturday, police said. "We have not spoken to Trevor as of yet and are still in the process of gathering more information".

Additional officers were called in to help secure Bates, who was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center for a psychiatric evaluation. Bates then spent a short time with the New York Giants before signing with the Detroit Lions in 2018.

After short spells with the New England Patriots and the New York Giants, Bates was eventually picked up by the Lions in May previous year. Bates said he did not like the officer in the area and when a sergeant entered the processing area, Bates punched the sergeant in the eye.

The officer received three stitches above his eye and was treated or a minor concussion, police said.

Bates appeared in nine games this season with three tackles.
