In the past two months, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been arrested twice. He was first arrested in early April on a 2nd-degree marijuana possession charge. And now, Fairley has been arrested for driving under the influence and attempting to elude police.
Alabama State Troopers say Fairley was arrested shortly after 1:00 a.m. Sunday on I-10 near the intersection of Highway 90 in Tillman’s Corner.
According to troopers Fairley initially refused to stop for the emergency lights and sirens. When he finally pulled over, troopers said Fairley seemed impaired. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle is facing several charges including DUI, attempting to elude police, and reckless driving.
Fairley was released after posting a $1700 bond. But it sounds like he should’ve just stayed there so he can stay out of trouble.
