Nick Fairley is in trouble again. This time, for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and attempting to allude police.
Fairley, the Detroit Lions’ first-round pick a year ago, was arrested for the second time since the beginning of April early this morning by Alabama State Troopers, according to Fox10 in Mobile, Ala.
Fairley was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana last month, also in Mobile, and is awaiting a July arraignment on that charge.
“We are aware of the reports and are in the process of gathering more information,” the Lions said in a statement.
Fairley’s agent, Brian Overstreet, did not return a phone call seeking comment and a call to Fairley’s cell phone said the number has been disconnected.
Fairley was arrested shortly after 1 a.m. today, according to the report. He was charged with DUI and attempting to elude police, but troopers told the station Fairley also was ticketed for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and having an open container.
He posted $1,750 bond and was released shortly after 9 a.m.
The Lions have made constant headlines for all the wrong reasons this off-season.
Along with Fairley’s two arrests, running back Mikel Leshoure was cited twice for possession of marijuana in Berrien County and offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested in South Carolina for possession of marijuana.
Receiver Titus Young also has not been allowed at the Lions’ Organized Team Activity practices since he suckerpunched Louis Delmas at a workout earlier this month.
The Lions took all four players in the 2011 draft.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz downplayed the perception that his team has a discipline problem last week.
“We’re not playing any games right now,” Schwartz said. “I think that a lot of times when people focus on some things about a team you can miss other things that a team does and we’ll just keep working harder to do better next time.”
Kicker Jason Hanson, meanwhile, said the off-field problems have been “a case of I think young guys just being dumb.”
“I don’t want to speak for the guys that got busted for their stuff, it’s just too easy to be immature,” Hanson said. “I’m sorry, but it’s always been that problem. But it’s just you’re young and it’s the NFL and it’s big time and you’ve got money and it’s just too easy to be stupid.
“All those guys I know and they work hard, so hopefully the guys that have influence on them, cause the kicker can’t slap them on the head, say, ‘What are you doing? You don’t want to throw away your talent with your position,’ and (this is) just some slight hiccups for them. But it’s not a hiccup for the team. I know all the guys are just like, ‘You guys are idiots, let’s go.’ Like I said, it’s good. There haven’t been distractions, but those are good players that are messing up and they just need to (straighten up).”
