Throughout this off-season, we’ve seen players from the Detroit Lions violate the law. Two names that standout have been Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure.
In recent news, Fairley has been arrested for the second time in the last 2 months for DUI and attempting to elude police in Alabama. He was caught by police traveling at 100 mph in his Cadillac Escalade. This arrest comes almost 2 months apart from an arrest he had in early April (marijuana possession). Not only could Fairley be facing consequences from the Lions organization but from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as well.
Mikel Leshoure also pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in early May, two months after police pulled him over and found marijuana in his mouth.
Another name to add to the list is wide receiver Titus Young. Titus Young hasn’t violated the law, but instead, sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas in OTA’s. Young was very apologetic after the incident and is looking to put it behind him.
Nick Fairley was the Lions first round selection in the 2011 draft, and both Titus Young and Mikel Leshoure were selected in the second round.
