Tampa Bay Buccaneer RB arrested for assaulting a pregnant woman

From the St. Petersburg Times-

Bucs running back Lionel Gates, a member of the practice squad last season, was arrested by Hillsborough County deputies overnight accused of several charges, including aggravated assault on a pregnant woman.

Gates, 25, is also accused of burglary of an occupied dwelling and criminal mischief.

Details of the arrest aren’t immediately clear, but Gates is being held at the Orient Road Jail and has not yet been granted bond.

Any assault on a pregnant woman is inexcusable. The Buccaneers should immediately release this thug.
