Ndamukong Suh cleared in pellet gun investigation
In the same week that Ndamukong Suh was fined a record $100,000 for this dirty chop block, we learn that the aggressive Detroit Lions defensive lineman was cleared in a pellet gun investigation.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Birmingham police in Michigan cleared Suh after investigating a complaint from an Xfinity cable man who alleged that the Lions DL threatened him with a pellet gun.
The cable guy reportedly claimed he was working on a utility pole in Suh’s backyard when Suh threatened him with the gun. He supposedly claimed that Suh cursed at him while pointing the gun upward and asked him to leave the property.
Suh was interviewed at the team hotel prior to the Aug. 15 preseason game against the Cleveland Browns regarding the complaint. He cooperated with the investigation and said he only picked up the pellet gun because he thought he heard noises behind his home. Surveillance video from Suh’s home apparently corroborated his account of the situation, leading to him being cleared.
“At no time in the video did Mr. Suh point the pellet gun at Mr. Ferrell in a threatening manner,” the case report said, per the Free Press. “The video shows the pellet gun in Suh’s right hand pointing at the ground. After several minutes, Mr. Suh has it over his right shoulder, pointing away from Mr. Ferrell.”
Suh may have been cleared in this situation, but he is no stranger to problems. In addition to all his questionable conduct on the field, Suh was accused of sideswiping a driver and berating the driver last year. He also crashed his car in Dec. 2011 while driving recklessly and lied about it to protect his image.
