Lions DT Nick Fairley Was Arrested Again Last Night, This Time On DUI And "Eluding" Police Charges

Nick Fairley sure is having a busy off season. In the distant past of April, Fairley was busted in Alabama (around the corner from his mom's house) for marijuana possession. Early this morning, he found himself handcuffed by Alabama police once again.

Reports are that he was charged with DUI and "attempting to elude police." Now, does that mean there was a police chase? Who knows, but it sure sounds like there was a chase—or the threat of a chase—of sorts. Maybe Fairley just took an alternate route to the shoulder when directed to pull over.

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.

He was charged with DUI and attempting to elude police, but troopers also said Fairley was ticketed for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and having an open container.


He was released around 9:00 a.m. this morning after posting $1750 bond.
