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.
