Saw the list of Lions players with troubles of various sorts, unreal! Some players 2 incidents, one is bad, two is ridiculous. When are they going to get the dose of maturity or direction they need???

So much potential, but how are they going to get there if they can't toe the line and stay out of trouble?

Do not feel too bad, I am a Vikings fan and the Vikings have the most arrests passing the Bengals

Nick Fairley of Detroit Lions arrested on DUI charge, attempting to elude police - ESPN

This is just stupid. This kid has a ton of talent and makes a bad decision like this. He is a professional athlete, he has money, how does he not hire someone to drive him around when he goes out? Or at least uses better sense and has a DD friend with him?

How? The same reason all these athletes get in trouble. They are stupid. You don't have to get straight As to play football.

The pot arrest does not concern me but the DUI does. I hope he has learned his lesson and will set his priorities. Best of luck to him.

Detroit Lions cornerback was arrested in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pa., for the second time this summer and charged with three accounts of simple assault for allegedly brandishing a firearm, police told the Detroit Free Press on Sunday.

Berry was previously arrested in late June and charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence after driving his vehicle into parked cars and attempting to flee at around 4 a.m.

So Aaron Berry is arrested 2nd time, this is how many this offseason for their team? Can't tell me there isn't some sort of disconnect here. All teams deal with arrrests periodically but this seems excessive.

At least we're not like the Bengals...yet. Something needs to happen.
