Buccaneers running back Lionel Gates (who?) was arrested and put in jail for punching a pregnant woman in the face (what?!) and pushing her into a wall.

Gates kicked in the front door of Peggie Lavender's apartment Thursday night, destroyed two televisions and two doors, put a hole in the bedroom wall and assaulted her, a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office report said. He was arrested later at his apartment in the same complex.

Gates was charged with burglary of a dwelling, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and criminal mischief.

Holy crap this guy is the Incredible Hulk. This is terrific news for the Bucs. I mean, if he doesn't go to jail during the season. They've got themselves a real hard-nose player with a mean streak. 

Meanwhile, Tom Brady saw this story and said "Hmmm… punching a pregnant woman, eh? Note to self…" 

NOTE: It's pretty hard to find pictures of pregnant women getting punched. 289 photoshop is forthcoming. 289's got other stuff going on. Bummer.
