Nick Fairley arrested for marijuana possession

Getty Images

It’s been a bad week for the Lions.

A day after 2011 second-round draft pick Mikel Leshoure made the wrong kind of headlines for, among other things, allegedly treating “wacky tobacky” like chewing tobacco, 2011 first-round pick Nick Fairley has been arrested for marijuana possession.

According to the Mobile Press-Register, Fairley has been charged with second-degree possession, a misdemeanor.

Police had received complaints about a car speeding through the Morningside Manor neighborhood.  As it turned out, Fairley was driving the vehicle.  Marijuana was then found in Fairley’s possession.

A Mobile native, Fairley played college football at Auburn before sliding to the middle of round one last April.  A preseason foot injury limited him to 10 regular-season appearances, with no starts, in 2011.

    calm down everyone, Ray Lewis murdered someone and the Ravens won the superbowl. This will only focus this team more…

    Maybe Mikel and Fairley smoke together.

  11. hawkforlife says: Apr 3, 2012 4:56 PM

    Now we know why Wonderlic scores are so low. Either they’re stoned when taking it or all these guys are too dumb to realize they’ll lose millions to smoke a little weed. Doesn’t matter if it should be legal or not. Right now it’s NOT.

  12. bedmanokc says: Apr 3, 2012 4:56 PM

    Its real simple. DONT SMOKE POT IN YOUR CAR. Keep your stash at home and burn one before you leave. I quit 5 years ago and i still remember that easy rule.

  13. ammarradhi says: Apr 3, 2012 4:56 PM

    Well what else is there to do in Detroit?

  14. jaggedmark says: Apr 3, 2012 4:56 PM

    Maybe the Lions’ new Nike uniforms should sport a cannabis leaf on the helmet.

  15. objectivenflfan says: Apr 3, 2012 4:57 PM

    Weed isn’t a big deal.

    However, it is when you’re an NFL player. You’re a role model – don’t drive with it in your possession, stay clean, do it in your buddies basement, in your basement, don’t speed… Is this a hard concept to grasp?

    On a different note (and one that would be interesting) – Thumbs “Up” for the legalization of Marijuana. Thumbs “Down” if you don’t like fun (a.k.a making the usage of Marijuana illegal).

    Terrible pick and I’m now starting to question Mayhew’s ability to draft legit talent. He is good at signing free agents but his drafts have been VERY questionable!!!

    Now we know some of the players that Hurd was supplying! He had to leave Dallas to get closer to Detroit’s players. Chicago was as close as he could get w/o being too obvious.

    How does speeding lead to a search of your car?

  36. Born Again Fitness.Com says: Apr 3, 2012 5:03 PM

    He didn’t have a choice about the search, he was driving on a suspended license. He is still a fool thought and the Lions are going to have to cut someone to send a message.

    Do you just keep the headline “__________ arrested for marijuana possession” open and ready to paste in the name? Would probably save a lot of time by the end of the year.

  40. mjkelly77 says: Apr 3, 2012 5:06 PM

    ____________________________________

    He was driving on a suspended license. Which means he was committing a misdemeanor which a lot of times is enough to arrest you if they want, and generally enough “probable cause” to search a car.

    Problem is even if it was just speeding. There are enough laws that don’t get enforced that they can fall back on if you don’t submit when asked. Also the way the legal system works in regards to traffic stops, turning down an inspection is enough “erratic or nervous behavior” to again warrant a search based on probable cause.

    Basically a car is not your domain and sadly its better to tell a cop where everything even slightly questionable is the second they ask to search it.

  53. Rex Grossman says: Apr 3, 2012 5:18 PM

    He was driving while rich and black. Automatic vehicle search. When the cops find pot in this situation it is like when you are playing Super Mario and you go out of your way to hit one of those ? boxes because you know there could be some good stuff but it ends up being just one coin and you’re like ugh figures but at least it was something even though it was the bare minimum. Super Mario coins That is what it’s like for the police and rich black people trust me I was on the force for 45 years.

    All the stoners in the NFL should just sign with Cali teams. It’s basically legal here (as it should be). It was pretty friggin awsome the first time a cop HAD TO give me back my weed and pipe! He was pissed, talking about “You’re abusing the law that was meant for sick people” I asked him why he wasn’t in the hospital checking on his patients and he said “I’m not a doctor” and I said “Exactly! Thanks for giving me my weed back officer!” Last year at the Charger/Packer game in SD, Packer fans were trippin as a cop rolled right past me and looked at me as I was puffing on a blunt in the parking lot. Gotta love Cali!

  60. lionfreq says: Apr 3, 2012 5:30 PM

    Third Lion to get busted with pot this offseason…Johnny Culbreath being the first. These are just the guys that got caught. Don’t they drug test in the NFL? Need a new test.

    For the people saying “know your rights” I have cops in my family. If you say no to a search they then have “reasonable doubt” that you have something in your car. They are then allowed to search.

    Ive heard it straight from the horses mouth, if they want to search your car they will.

  63. scoregasmic says: Apr 3, 2012 5:40 PM

  77. liontuss says: Apr 3, 2012 6:06 PM

    Since many of us are OK with weed, let’s take it out of the equation. What was he doing driving without a license (like so many other NFL players)?

    He hurts or kills someone while speeding and no one will, or can, help the victim or him, certainly not the insurance company. And whatever money he had will be gone.

    Man, many NFL players are just plain stupid human beings. On last year’s draft day, I joked that Fairly looked stupid with that bow tie. Now I know he’s genuinely stupid.

  78. butkus54 says: Apr 3, 2012 6:11 PM

    you’ve gotta be kidding … if the league doesn’t suspend these guys the team should ! … Lions fans finally have something to get excited about after last year, and then guys like Culbreath , Leshoure and Fairly pull this sh!!t. Thanks.

    Still illegal and speeding around with it? No license? How dumb are you? Really?

    If it was finally legalized, it may slow the game down a little, probably lesson the injuries, and surely do away with fighting in the stands.

    As of right now, weed is not legal so debating whether it should be is pointless. The law isn’t suddenly going to change because some football players got busted with it.

  88. trevor123698 says: Apr 3, 2012 7:14 PM

    It truly amazes me that people fail to realize that drugs were never illegal in the first place. The problem is that much of the world is incapable of even understanding contract law versus ‘god’s law’, and in turn using their knowledge to truly live free.

    Fairley got caught with some grass. Big effen deal. The real question about Fairley should be whether or not he is another Tony Mandarich type of mistake. I think the Lions made a huge mistake drafting this clown. He is one of those over-hyped, once every ten years, Flops. Now he will get suspended and have another sub-par showing for the rest of his season. Then what? Wait on him for another season while paying him millions of dollars for not producing? The Lions need to cut their losses and mve on from that slacker.

  92. chandler1 says: Apr 3, 2012 7:25 PM

    This article is not about whether or not pot should be legal so all of you advocates for reform should seek a soapbox somewhere else. Dovetailed with the Mikel Leshoure story, it has to be disheartening, for football fans everywhere and Lion fans in particular, to see young men with an opportunity to participate in a immensely lucrative profession, play the game of their dreams and contribute to their team’s pursuit of post season glory, and, rather than show commitment to team ideals, choose to pursue selfish, foolish activities. Putting the choice to commit low level crimes aside, how can they justify being too immature to take care of their driver’s licenses, too lazy to pay their tickets, too stupid to stay off the road with dope in the car and too unconcerned with league imposed sanctions as a result of the above?

    “Ive heard it straight from the horses mouth, if they want to search your car they will.”

    I’m not an attorney but I play one on TV. “Reasonable doubt” is a standard applied in a civil trial, “beyond the shadow of a doubt” is applied in criminal trials, perhaps you’re thinking of probable cause, which is a standard applied to search and seizure of property, evidence or personal effects. Refusal of a request for a search doesn’t establish probable cause and practically any attorney listed in the phone book would get the “evidence” thrown out if you refused the search and it was conducted without a search warrant. That being said the chicken$hit misdemeanor traffic infraction of driving while suspended will usually lead to an arrest and since the vehicle is now “unattended” courts will generally err on the side of caution and public safety and allow a search of the vehicle. You are correct about one thing though…. most cops don’t care about probable cause.

    driving on a suspended license is NOT a misdemeanor in every state. a first offense in NJ is considered a traffic violation and nothing more. My license was suspended because I forgot to pay a toll violation ticket I received. I didn’t realize that it was suspended(im sure I ignored the notices) and I was involved in a car accident(not my fault) and they didn’t even tow my car. The cop asked if I knew someone who could come get it. I said yes. He gave me a ticket for driving on a suspended license(for which a court appearance was required) and I paid the fine. I will say this though, In NJ if you get caught driving on a suspended license a 2nd time, there is automatic jail time

    Preface: I hate the Lions, Detroit is a blight upon Earth that should be nuked from orbit (its the only way to be sure) and I do not smoke pot. It might seem like only potheads would know/learn/care about such things, but this is inaccurate. You are not obligated to believe me, but 20 minutes of Googling will confirm all of the following:

    In the US, THC is considered by the DEA to be a “schedule I” drug, which means that substances which deliver THC, (such as marijuana) are defined as having a “high potential for abuse, no medical value, and being unsafe, even under medical supervision”.

    Meanwhile, the DEA considers opiates (such as cocaine and hydromorphine) and OxyContin are “schedule II” drugs. Still prone to abuse, but with acceptable medical benefits, and so can be prescribed by doctors to treat certain conditions.

    All of these drugs are much more damaging and physically addictive that Cannabis, but they can be synthesized, and so their availability controlled. Such artificial controls could not be ensured for a non-synthetic, resilient plant such as marijuana.

    I realize this is a sports-centric message board, not a pulpit for drug advocacy, but America’s “war on drugs” has far exceeded the limits of credibility, and private, adult citizens such as Nick Fairley have been unfairly punished for far too long.

    Lotta high-character guys in that Lions locker room. They’re really starting to take on the personality of their HC. Soon the whole team will be filled with whiny, oversensitive guys who don’t take responsibility for their actions. Good luck Lions fans!

  109. alldonesmith says: Apr 3, 2012 9:11 PM

    Oh wait… Lions fans are taking after him too.

    I see “arrested for marijuana” and I chuckle

  111. nflfollower says: Apr 3, 2012 9:24 PM

    Refusal of a search does NOT establish probable cause or any legal justification for a search. I don’t care if there are cops in your family, my uncle is a county prosecutor (lawyer who works with cops) and has told me many times he can’t believe how unintelligent so many cops are. The fact that a cop said it does not make it true, in fact u should really question it. Know your rights, people have died to defend them.

    Maybe the Lions’ new Nike uniforms should sport a cannabis leaf on the helmet.

    Move to Cali. weed only gets you a $100 dollar fine even if you don’t have your card. Big Ben can drunk rape but we can’t smoke a little weed? something ain’t right in this country.

    If only he had the wherewithal to remember What Jay-Z had taught us in 99 problems. If you’ve been pulled over for speeding they don’t have the right to search your car without probable cause.

  116. b00rad says: Apr 3, 2012 10:36 PM

    If you check the police blotter, 4 of the last 8 arrest were from marijuana possession. I guess Sam Hurd is back in business

  117. papacrick says: Apr 3, 2012 10:38 PM

    We can make fun of the Lions all night but let’s be serious. Every NFL team is chocked full of cheeb smokers

    To be Fairley, maybe he was holdin just a “nick” and the rest was planted.

  120. vike129 says: Apr 3, 2012 10:58 PM

    wow..if weed makes him speed.then what makes him slow down?maybe he should ask his coach for a line!i heard he’s got the good stuff.just look at his eyes.

  121. greenbleeder says: Apr 3, 2012 11:29 PM

    Lions first 4 weeks will be tough. Suspensions for both players is going to hurt!
    ———————————————————-

    How do you figure? LeShoure never took the field last year, Fairley only in 10 games. They won all 6 games that both didn’t play.

  128. mecos47 says: Apr 4, 2012 12:28 AM

    I think its awesome that a Lion loves his weed.

  129. nagaswan says: Apr 4, 2012 12:50 AM

    Safer than alcohol.

  130. majbobby says: Apr 4, 2012 12:56 AM

    Hey NFL you want to stop this. Here is how you do it. This is how the league should be cleaned up.

    You perform a crime, pop hot on a piss test, NO Suspensions or Fines.

    Life time ban. Fire their ass. They are “professionals” adults stop coddling them they screw up they lose their right to make Millions playing a game.

  131. rexryanschoolofpodiatry says: Apr 4, 2012 12:59 AM

    Marijuana possession is LEGAL in Michigan for medicinal purposes. Fairley may very well have a medical card but since he was in Alabama and it is illegal there, he was arrested. Very stupid of Fairley to put himself in this position but it may all just be a misunderstanding. I think the driving on a suspended license should be a bigger deal than the pot in his car.

    u guys make it seem as if they live In The ghetto on 6 mile ,Detroit has one of the richest suburban areas in the USA . 👊👊

    The Lions are quickly becoming the new Bengals.

  134. wegogreenbay says: Apr 4, 2012 10:04 AM

    We’re shocked that a guy from the south, who plays in “The D” blows trees? Please.

  135. aberamsey says: Apr 4, 2012 11:11 AM

    Anyone who thinks the police need consent to search his car or you car or anyone’s car are delirious. All they need is probable cause and the fact that it reeked of weed and there was weed residue in the console is all they need.

    Our individual rights are slowly slipping away and the perception that law enforcement can’t do whatever they want is an antiquated notion.
