Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh found out on Monday that he won’t be suspended for kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. But at the rate Suh is going, it may be just a matter of time before his drivers license is suspended.
FOX 2 in Detroit is reporting that Suh was ticketed in Lathrup Village, Michigan, on November 15 for failure to use due care and caution. That is at least Suh’s fourth traffic incident within the past year: A month earlier Suh and another driver both said they were sideswiped by each other. In March, Suh was ticketed for driving 91 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. A year ago, while Suh was serving his suspension for his infamous Thanksgiving stomp of Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, he was ticketed for an accident in which he drove into a tree in Portland, Oregon.
Suh’s bad driving goes back to his college days at Nebraska: He was cited for negligent driving in college when he sideswiped several parked cars in an incident that he said was caused by swerving to avoid hitting an animal.
It might be time for Suh to use some of the $68 million in his five-year contract with the Lions to hire himself a full-time chauffeur.
