Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been arrested for the second time in two months on charges of driving under the influence and attempting to elude police. Fairley, 24, was traveling at speeds of 100 mph in his Cadillac Escalade.
After refusing to stop for the trooper’s emergency lights and siren in Mobile County, the NFL player pulled over and seemed impaired.
Fairley was then arrested without incident and was also cited for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and an open container.
Fox10TV.com reported that he posted $1,750 bond and was released shortly after 9 a.m. on Sunday.
Lions spokesman Bill Keenist says the team is aware of the reports and is gathering information.
Fairley also was arrested April 3 in Mobile on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge after citizens called to complain that his Escalade was speeding through a lower-middle class neighborhood.
