BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Former New Orleans Saints cornerback Randall J. Gay was arrested early Thursday after he allegedly pushed two employees at a Baton Rouge bar and refused to leave the premises.
Baton Rouge Police Lt. Don Kelly said officers were called to The Bulldog at 1:45 a.m. to investigate a report of someone refusing to leave after being asked to do so.
Police had to escort Gay, 31, of Brusly, out of the bar and resisted arrest, Kelly said.
Gay was booked with entering/remaining on premises after being forbidden, two counts of simple battery, resisting an officer and disturbing the peace by public intoxication. He was released from Parish Prison shortly before 7:15 a.m. after posting bail, according to The Advocate (http://bit.ly/12h3oaF ).
It was not immediately known whether Gay has an attorney.
Kelly said a woman who was with Gay tried to interfere with police as they were trying to handcuff him. Desha Penco, 33, of Baton Rouge, was booked with disturbing the peace by public intoxication, simple damage to property and interference with a police officer, Kelly said.
Kelly said the woman tried to kick the back window of the police car and a car door when she was arrested. He said he did not know the relationship between Gay and Penco.
Information on whether Penco remained in custody was not immediately available.
Gay, of Brusly (BREW'-lee), is a former LSU defensive back who played for New England and New Orleans, including the Saints' 2009-10 Super Bowl championship team. The Saints released him in July 2011.
