Detroit Lions Notch Sixth Offseason Arrest
This would make an interesting Las Vegas bet: More wins or arrests involving the Detroit Lions in 2012.
Right now, having only six arrests, safe money would be on wins by the Lions.
But training camp hasn't even started, and at this pace there may be more Detroit Lions arrests than games played in 2012, let alone wins the Lions could possibly accumulate.
Aaron Berry is the latest Detroit Lion to get arrested. The young cornerback who had been competing for a starting position was arrested Saturday morning in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on suspicion of drunk driving after causing an accident, reports WXYZ.
Berry was reportedly driving his car near the Hilton Hotel when he lost control and struck several parked vehicles, reports WXYZ. Berry then allegedly exited his car and tried to flee the scene. A witness followed him and called police. Berry was in town for a charity softball game hosted by LeSean McCoy, and he has been charged with suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, two counts of causing accidental damage to an unattended vehicle or property, and two counts of failure to stop and give information to law enforcement and render aid.
Before Berry made the headlines, two other young Lions also had their run-ins with the law. Highly touted (and overrated) 2011 first round pick Nick Fairly has been arrested for a DUI as well as a marijuana possession charge. And fellow 2011 draftee Mikel LeShoure was similarly arrested twice for marijuana possession, writes TheBigLead.
If you're keeping track that's one recent first round pick and one recent second round pick by the Detroit Lions each arrested multiple times. Maybe Lion's fans can now fondly look back on the Matt Millen draft-a-receiver era as the Golden Days.
