According to NFL.com, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Geno Hayes was arrested early Monday morning and charged with misdemeanor trespassing and disorderly conduct at a Tampa nightclub.

According to the arrest report, police Cpl. Gary Price said the 6-foot-3, 225-pound starting linebacker "was loud, verbally abusive and made threats to myself and staff from the club."

The officer ordered Hayes "to walk away from the front door," and Hayes "took a stance and refused to leave," the report said. The officer told Hayes he would shock him with a stun gun if he didn't leave, and Hayes persisted and was tasered, the report said. The shock did not subdue Hayes because his clothing was too thick, so Price tackled Hayes and took him into custody.

Hayes was released at 5 a.m. after posting cash bail of $750.

Hayes had a tackle and a sack in the Bucs' 17-16 win at Washington on Sunday.

Hayes was previously shot with a stun gun during an arrest in Tallahassee in 2007 while he attended Florida State University.

    I agree alcohol= drama. Some people can deal with it but most can't. And am I alone in laughing that they used the word "tackled"?

    As ;ong as you are not commiting murder then its ok to breal all other laws? What a pathetic loser you are Not Necessary. I would be willing to bet you already have a record,probably armed robbery but since it was not murder it was no big deal. Like I said you are a pathetic loser.

    That could be. You can't let yourself be played. Don't react. That is what they want. In court they will twist it. You have to be overly polite and walk away. That is how you win that game.

    It is a shame the police had tazers. The only weapon for this knucklehead is a baton, and if that doesn't do the trick, a book!!!

    I AGREE WITH TIMNEY. HOW ABOUT WE TARGET THE ONES THAT ARE OUT THERE FOR MURDER THAN ONES BEING LOUD IN A NIGHTCLUB. THIS WORLD HAS ITS PRIORITIES OUT OF ORDER. IF THIS WAS ANYONE ELSE IT SURE WOULDNT MAKE PUBLICITY AND NOT TO MENTION BRING UP A ARRESTS FROM YEARS AGO.

    People need to give him a break. Most cops I know are rude and disrespectful. This was probably one of them.
