Officials say Emma Hope Grant and Derrick Paul Holmes of Georgia were arrested Monday at the Howard Johnson located on 2055 N Dale Mabry in Tampa. According to police, the 27-year-old Grant and the 29-year-old Holmes were wanted in Georgia in connection with a prostitute's death in 2008.

A U.S. Marshals press release says Holmes was a pimp to several girls throughout the southeast. They say he killed Nakisha Rawls in Georgia because she decided to stop being a prostitute.

Grant allegedly drove Holmes to and from the homicide. Charges were filed in Georgia but authorities say the pair fled.

Tampa, Florida -- A linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was arrested overnight.

Arrest records show 23-year-old Geno Hayes faces charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct. Hayes was arrested shortly after 2 a.m. Monday and bonded out a short time later.

According to Tampa Police, the incident happened at the Blue Martini Lounge at International Plaza in Tampa.

Hayes reportedly intervened after a confrontation between two disruptive men who were refused to be let inside by club security. Police and security eventually had the two men leave and instructed Hayes to return inside the lounge.

However, officials say Hayes stood at the entrance of the bar, making derogatory comments at security and police. Due to Hayes' continued disorderly behavior, he was also advised to leave the establishment.

Hayes reportedly refused and was escorted to the parking lot by a police officer, and advised not to return or risk arrest.
