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


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.


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.
