Lions Facing Possible Penalties In Light Of Nick Fairley, Mikel Leshoure Arrests

Last Saturday, for the second time in less than two months, Lions 2011 first-round pick Nick Fairley was arrested. In early April, the defensive tackle was charged with possession of marijuana; his most recent booking came courtesy of a DUI and eluding police.

Two of his Detroit draft classmates, running back Mikel Leshoure and offensive lineman Johnny Culbreath were also arrested on marijuana-related charges this offseason.
