Lions defensive end Ronnell Lewis has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors stemming from an April bar fight in Norman, Oklahoma.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Lewis pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace and public intoxication and was given a six-month deferred sentence.

Lewis, who played his college football at Oklahoma, paid $400 in fines and court costs. If Lewis doesn’t get in trouble again in Norman in the next six months, the no-contest pleas will be removed from his record and the charges will be dismissed.

In the April incident, Lewis and the man he fought with had to be dragged out of a bar, and a police officer twice used a Taser on Lewis to subdue him.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Lions last year, Lewis was a special teams player as a rookie but is expected to get more playing time on defense this year.

    I’m glad my team does not have turds like this. Oh, I forgot I’m a Patriots fan. Too bad.

    Say WHA?

    A lion in trouble with the law? Lies.

    Shouldn’t be too hard to keep away for 6 months. I’ve managed to avoid Norman my entire life.

    If he had to be dragged out and tasered twice then I don’t mind having him on defense.

    If this is the worst the Lions have this offseason, I’ll take it. I don’t even count the Spievey thing since both him and his girlfriend were both being idiots. We’re basically only at 1.5 arrests. After a half dozen last off season…whatever man.

    I hope Lewis’s agent, the Lions coaches and Lewis’s family just tell him to stay away from Norman, Okla. for the next 6 months. Too bad nobody told Denard to stay away from Nebraska til at least next March.

    It will only be a matter of time before he screws up again.

    Why don’t Lions fans put pressure on William Clay Ford to clean up this team?

    It is an embarrassment to the city and the Ford family.

    And the other combatant?
