Suh is accused of sideswiping a car, leaving scene of accident

Ndamukong Suh, Brandon Fusco AP

On the same day Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was featured on this page in response to allegations that he’s not showing enough fight on the field, he’s showing too much fight off it.

Allegedly.

According to FOX 2 in Detroit, Steve Vines claims that Suh sideswiped Vines’ car, left the scene of the accident, and then yelled at Vines at a stoplight.

Vines says he called Dearborn, Michigan police, who told him to go to the team’s practice facility and wait for them to arrive.  So that’s what Vines did.

“That’s when [Suh] said, ‘I advise you to leave, now,’” Vines said.  “And I said, ‘I’m not going anywhere.  I talked to the police.’  [He said], ‘I don’t care what they said.  You need to get out of here.’  And then he said, ‘I’m advising you to leave, now.’”

Police reportedly are investigating.

It’s the second time in less than a year that Suh has been involved in a traffic incident.  He’s currently facing a lawsuit for injuries allegedly suffered by a passenger when Suh wrecked a car in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, during a two-game suspension for stomping on Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith.

    So glad this guy is finally getting exploited for what he is. A total piece of garbage on and off the field

  2. apac6586 says: Oct 11, 2012 7:58 PM

    He’s definitely going to get Suh’ed. Buuuuuuzzzzzzzingggggggggg!

  3. spellingcopfather says: Oct 11, 2012 7:59 PM

    Ok for one I give the respect for standing up to SUH, 2. SuH needs to hire a driver!!!!

  4. chuckyv1134 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:00 PM

    Wow I cant believe I used to like this dude. GROW UP and use some of that money on a DRIVER. Big man can’t even swing a check to fix someones car that YOU hit? Bum.

  5. numberoneinthehoodg says: Oct 11, 2012 8:00 PM

    He’s Spongebob Squarpants when it comes to driving isn’t he?

  6. salventuri says: Oct 11, 2012 8:00 PM

    Only in the NFL does a site require a Police Blotter page.

  7. acerockefellar says: Oct 11, 2012 8:00 PM

    Dirty player, even dirtier person.

  8. adeedothatswho says: Oct 11, 2012 8:01 PM

    *facepalm*

    This kid is as dumb as they come.

  9. astrosfan75956 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:01 PM

    This guy thinks he is above the law, I swear.

  10. carlsbadboltfan says: Oct 11, 2012 8:03 PM

    Wow. Suhsie involved in a hit & run. Anyone else in Michigan doing the same thing would be arrested.

  11. youallrfools says: Oct 11, 2012 8:04 PM

    Get the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker ready for a reset!

  12. chuckyv1134 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:05 PM

    Not to mention he could have easily avoided ANY press on this by just getting out of his car, giving his insurance info and apologize like a NORMAL human being.

    This guy was a Lions fan driving his kids car…you think he’d call the cops for no reason to get him in trouble?? All he wanted was the car fixed, he would have been flattered to meet Suh. I really hate this guy now.

  13. jmclarkent says: Oct 11, 2012 8:05 PM

    Haynesworth 2.0.

  14. jpb12 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:06 PM

    Does the ‘peel back’ rule apply to sideswiping drivers?

  15. wryly1 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:10 PM

    Suh’s brains, common sense, character and integrity were as overrated as his football talent.

  16. nomoreseasontix says: Oct 11, 2012 8:12 PM

    No chance. Hard to believe….

  17. jskill3 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:12 PM

    As he explains it, he was just using it for leverage so he could change lanes safely. Is there a video?

  18. vbe2 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:15 PM

    Is this idiot trying to end up the way Jerome Brown did?

    This fool needs a nice suspension.

  19. jpb12 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:15 PM

    Can’t believe SUBWAY supports this guy

  20. billh1947 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:15 PM

    This guy should have answered Suhs threat to get out of there with an or what big guy? you gonna punch me out?go ahead make my day, and me millions of dollars.another dumb move by a player in the Lions hall of shame.

  21. buffalosaint says: Oct 11, 2012 8:18 PM

    I thought maybe the site had reverted to a page from last year when I read the headline.

  22. Gordon says: Oct 11, 2012 8:18 PM

    That’s Suh’s first good hit this season.

  23. larryboodry says: Oct 11, 2012 8:19 PM

    Overrated as a player, totally worthless as a human being.

  24. elwaysmilehighdenver says: Oct 11, 2012 8:20 PM

    I’ll wait for the details of the investigation
    before passing judgement. If true the Lions season and questionable behavior
    continues to swirl right down the toilet.
    Overhyped underachieving losers!

  25. amaf21 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:22 PM

    Haynesworth would’ve punched that guy.

    jmclarkent says:
    Oct 11, 2012 8:05 PM
    Haynesworth 2.0.

  26. rg3andout says: Oct 11, 2012 8:23 PM

    was it a chrysler ? made in detroit

  27. datdangdrewdundunituhgin says: Oct 11, 2012 8:24 PM

    ughhh… this guy is turning into such a loser.

  28. ravenzoverskinz says: Oct 11, 2012 8:27 PM

    This guy is a idiot man, Hanesworth 2.0 he needs to put up or shut up!

  29. eastofmissball says: Oct 11, 2012 8:37 PM

    Wonder if the NFL will start allowing players to play with ankle monitors on….

  30. 6250claimer says: Oct 11, 2012 8:37 PM

    Suh is the JAMF we all knew he was all along. C’mon Detroit ownership, grow a pair and cut the dude. Let him wear out his welcome somewhere else.

  31. edenprairieballer says: Oct 11, 2012 8:39 PM

    I am not a Suh fan by any means but the police told the man to go to the Lions practice facility? That sounds a bit sketchy but then again i am not so sure how effective police in Detroit are. Do they even have police in Detroit?

  32. grudenlikesme says: Oct 11, 2012 8:42 PM

    He could learn a thing or two from Ben Afleck.

  33. pftcensorssuck says: Oct 11, 2012 8:45 PM

    So this is how he treats the public, huh?

  34. mmmpierogi says: Oct 11, 2012 8:46 PM

    Odd. Wasn’t Suh involved in some weird car-related shenanigans in Oregan not too long ago that got swept under the rug?

  35. daysend564 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:48 PM

    Dude needs to learn how to drive

  36. jmb795 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:49 PM

    Alas. I guess the N on the Nebraska helmet doesn’t stand for knowledge after all.

  37. otissor says: Oct 11, 2012 8:55 PM

    What a dirtbag.

  38. orthomarine says: Oct 11, 2012 8:55 PM

    Garbage stinking up society

  39. t16rich says: Oct 11, 2012 8:57 PM

    Well, at least Detroit has the Redwings, Pistons and Tigers. Who is the coaching staff there? The 80′s and 90′s Miami Hurricanes alumni?

  40. upperdecker19 says: Oct 11, 2012 8:58 PM

    In a related story, the Geico insurance lizard just put a bounty on Suh

  41. greymares says: Oct 11, 2012 8:58 PM

    as an Eagle fan i say suspend him today. lol.

  42. dogg91702 says: Oct 11, 2012 9:08 PM

    Cut him some slack, the lions are having a bad year

  43. q1ller says: Oct 11, 2012 9:11 PM

    What a loser… threatening another citizen with bodily harm in order to avoid the consequences of his actions.

    He sure seems to make more headlines off the field than on it. When the Vikes played Detroit a couple of weeks back you never even heard his name mentioned during the game. I guess he mustn’t have cheap-shotted for a change.

  44. hendeeze says: Oct 11, 2012 9:11 PM

    With all the money you make Suh, you should really attend a Skip Barber driver training school.

  45. funshipm174 says: Oct 11, 2012 9:29 PM

    Looks like that’s the fastest Suh moved all season.

  46. larryboodry says: Oct 11, 2012 9:33 PM

    ravenzoverskinz says: Oct 11, 2012 8:27 PM

    “This guy is a idiot man, Hanesworth 2.0 he needs to put up or shut up!”

    At this point he just needs to go away.

  47. bobhk says: Oct 11, 2012 9:36 PM

    You must be really proud of these guys @mjkelly77

  48. chi01town says: Oct 11, 2012 9:55 PM

    Ndamukong Scumb bag… hes a bumb that makes the worse choices
    and I bet he was drunk too. thats why he ran. Goodell needs to do the league a favor here

  49. cmdv8 says: Oct 11, 2012 9:57 PM

    Bust. And I was so happy when they drafted him too but sadly he will be a BUST.

  50. thejuddstir says: Oct 11, 2012 10:04 PM

    As others have stated……….Suh is Albert Haynesworth II. Suh’s best days were in college, he’s been a bust in the NFL.

  51. Andre's Johnson says: Oct 11, 2012 10:11 PM

    LOL @ “I’m advising you to leave now.”

    Steve Vines should never have to buy another beer in his life. He’s now the favorite person of every not-Lions fan.

  52. phuriousjorge says: Oct 11, 2012 10:23 PM

    Dummy. It’s just an accident (albeit his fault) unless he was under the influence. Since I highly doubt that, this becomes a suspend-able crime. What a maroon.

  53. stevenfbrackett says: Oct 11, 2012 10:26 PM

    And just a few stories down Suh is criticizing someone else for not ‘acting like a man’.

    Someone introduce him to the Kettle.

  54. flickaboogie says: Oct 11, 2012 10:41 PM

    Sounds a little fishy to me. He wasn’t arrested? Kinda sounds like the guy wants a new car from a rich guy.

  55. indywilson40 says: Oct 11, 2012 10:46 PM

    Mental midget.

  56. hay1111 says: Oct 11, 2012 11:01 PM

    I bet the NFL doesnt suspend him for a year

  57. mattolikesthevikes says: Oct 11, 2012 11:03 PM

    This guys a terrible driver.

  58. kingpel says: Oct 11, 2012 11:08 PM

    I know one thing. This guy would not be believable as Webster’s step dad.

  59. 4evrnyt says: Oct 11, 2012 11:09 PM

    Said before but it continues to be true:

    Suh = Haynesworth. It’s only a matter of time before Suh is out of the league too.

  60. chi01town says: Oct 11, 2012 11:13 PM

    Scumb bag!! Suh is the lowest form of slime that there is… Even in Detroit. Suh is a dirty player an offensive coordinators an line coaches all over the NFL knows how to shut him down… this makes him average. an the only thing hes got now is his mouth. CUT HIM NOW!!

  61. bensstinkyfingers says: Oct 11, 2012 11:24 PM

    Guess he was a perfect fit for those trendy Chrysler commercials. Cant wait to see the hit / skip versions.

  62. discosucs2005 says: Oct 11, 2012 11:26 PM

    Dear god Lions, get it together.

  63. monstersofthemidway545051 says: Oct 11, 2012 11:28 PM

    Suh is just trying to rack up some arrests in an effort to force a trade to the Bengals.

  64. bensstinkyfingers says: Oct 11, 2012 11:28 PM

    It’s th “d” man this is how they drive up there, at least he didnt carjack someone then hit and skip with stolen car. Things can lways be worse! Suh is still a gigantic turd.

  65. lowriderfxr says: Oct 11, 2012 11:42 PM

    …ask any Lion, the he even ever knew, he’ll tell ya, keep away from drive around Suh, hey hey heeeeeeeeeeyyyyy hey hey

  66. nodindenver says: Oct 12, 2012 12:43 AM

    He is a hot head idiot, the lions suck, and we all saw something like this coming. He obviously did not!

  67. bucfandango says: Oct 12, 2012 12:54 AM

    Suh told police it was a legal hit in the side and not from behind. Suh was not flagged for alleged infraction and No further action will be forthcoming from the NFL.

  68. flyboy123456 says: Oct 12, 2012 1:21 AM

    I’m hearing from a reliable source that he may have been interacting with a young lady while driving. I guess several people heard him yelling over and over “I’mgonnacumsoon!!”

    You can’t expect a fella to drive right, right??

    Oh boy.

  69. mgifford15 says: Oct 12, 2012 2:24 AM

    Ndamukong poo. So glad I don’t jump the bandwagon on this guy 2 years ago. I knew he was garbage at Nebraska. Acts like trash on and off the field. It’s funny to me because even when Detroit is somewhat relevant, they manage to shoot themselves in the foot. The lions are the new bengals of the nfl.

  70. hedleykow says: Oct 12, 2012 3:08 AM

    Makes me want to go out and get myself some Allstate, just thinking about the Mayhem that could strike with Suh behind the wheel.

  71. nathanbetz91 says: Oct 12, 2012 3:12 AM

    this guy is seriously a bust. he doesnt contribute in games for 3 reasons: 1. he causes trouble off the field 2. he causes trouble on the field 3. hes always suspended it seems for the troubles hes caused. and make it four things cuz really what has he accomplished so far while he has actually been playing

  72. treydeck says: Oct 12, 2012 3:49 AM

    Give me JJ Watt any day over this clown….

  73. randallflagg52 says: Oct 12, 2012 5:29 AM

    This isn’t even worth joking about. This guy is trash just plain and simple.

    Suh was a one year wonder in college (just like Fairly) and is a one year wonder in the NFL. Sad to see a guy waste such potential talent.

  74. iluvbears says: Oct 12, 2012 6:06 AM

    When Suh was coming out of college, all the media reported was what a upstanding citizen he was. Obviously, he isn’t. He is a complete jerk.

  75. mlandsjr says: Oct 12, 2012 7:04 AM

    He seems to be following the Haynesworth career track…next Suh report will involve strippers and paternity suits.

  76. nashwaakkidd says: Oct 12, 2012 7:07 AM

    dumber than dirt. only a matter of time ’til he injures/kills someone, then he’ll get a real slap on the wrist.

  77. pologroundsvet says: Oct 12, 2012 7:21 AM

    Detroit long ago proved they knew how to lose. Now they need to prove they know how to win – in all ways. So far they are a dismal faikure at it starting with the coach.

  78. cronybomb says: Oct 12, 2012 7:40 AM

    C’mon man…really? I was pro Suh as long as I could be but the Lions need to trade this fool while he still has a little value.

  79. weneedlinemen42 says: Oct 12, 2012 7:45 AM

    “Vines says he called Dearborn, Michigan police, who told him to go to the team’s practice facility and wait for them to arrive. So that’s what Vines did.”

    Sorry, but if that is true it is a disgrace.

    “Sir, you say someone crashed into your car? A big man, he was aggressive as well. What we’d like you to do is go to his place of work. We’ll be along later. Don’t worry about the potential this has for turning into a violent confrontation.”

  80. otis52gsh says: Oct 12, 2012 7:55 AM

    What a waste of flesh this guy is. This is all a reflection back to the type schwartzy likes. Undisciplined, childish, and overrated. It this story holds true, the NFL and the TEAM need to suspend this head case.

  81. tdk24 says: Oct 12, 2012 8:52 AM

    Since when does Suh think he’s an Advisor? He’s just a plain old lowlife scumbag.

  82. essentialsausage says: Oct 12, 2012 8:52 AM

    Suh can’t drive!

  83. jboyrocks says: Oct 12, 2012 8:59 AM

    People, There is no way in hell ever, ever, ever, ever a cop would EVER tell an alleged victim to go seek out and or confront an alleged suspect…..EVER, and anyone with an ounce of common sense know that. That is a lie and discredits his whole story. This guy is full of it and is just out for whatever he can get from someone with money.

  84. fuglyflorio says: Oct 12, 2012 9:15 AM

    Albert Haynesworth 2.0. Let’s face it … this is not going to end well. He’s trouble.

  85. boyd54 says: Oct 12, 2012 9:21 AM

    Yeah, you moral police that want the Lions to make a point and cut him…you are like the Jets fans. You know the ones that were excited when they signed Aaron Berry.

  86. catfish252 says: Oct 12, 2012 9:22 AM

    Hey Mr. Goodell – If this turns out to be true (and I’m not doubting it) then Suh needs to be suspended without pay for a good long while.

  87. melvin75 says: Oct 12, 2012 9:24 AM

    Man, here’s another million dollar talent with a ten cent head.

  88. docsweeney says: Oct 12, 2012 9:26 AM

    If the other driver has damages, can he SUH?

    I am not a Suh fan by any means but the police told the man to go to the Lions practice facility? That sounds a bit sketchy but then again i am not so sure how effective police in Detroit are. Do they even have police in Detroit?

    Robocop. Suh flipped him off.

  90. realitypolice says: Oct 12, 2012 9:30 AM

    @jboyrocks:

    Please read the article again without your fanboy bias. The police told him to meet THEM at the practice facility, not go there and confront Suh.

    Nice try, though.

  91. chc4 says: Oct 12, 2012 9:39 AM

    Let me guess… it’s Goodell’s fault?

  92. vikefan says: Oct 12, 2012 9:39 AM

    He needs to be endorsed by a different “subway”

    how not surprising

  95. edenprairieballer says: Oct 12, 2012 10:53 AM

    @docsweeny. I forgot about Robocop. i take back anything i said about the Detroit police!

  96. thekiy says: Oct 12, 2012 12:39 PM

    And police just closed the incident. Suh is not even getting a ticket. It was referred to as a ‘minor traffic incident’.

    Sorry, no news here.

    ——————————–
    Except that he fled the scene and threatened someone…I have seen videos of how the cops in Dearborn operate…They do not have the finest reputation for doing their job properly.

  98. onbucky96 says: Oct 12, 2012 3:54 PM

    Another piece of trash Detroit Lioness in trouble with the law, again. Way to ‘allegedly” scare/imtidate the victum @Lions HQ. I thought Billy Ford wasn’t going to tolerate this anymore, or is that just for useless cornerbacks?

    I believe Suh was a jerk, like the guy who’s car was hit was the idiot, but why did the police tell the guy to go to the training camp instead of riding with an officer? If there is anyone I root for getting screwed by people trying to make a buck off the rich is the idiot Suh. Good luck to dude.

  102. michiganhockey11 says: Oct 12, 2012 4:51 PM

    Fleeing the scene of an automobile accident in Michigan is a felony. We’ll see how bad he gets hit with a punishment (not).
