Lions' Nick Fairley charged with marijuana possession
By Chris McCosky
The Detroit News


Allen Park —Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, 24, became the third player from the Lions' draft class of 2011 to be arrested for a marijuana-related offense since the end of last season.

First it was offensive lineman Johnny Culbreath, who was busted for possession in South Carolina in January. On Monday, it was revealed that running back Mikel Leshoure had been arrested twice in less than a month in southwest Michigan — for use and possession.

On Tuesday, it was Fairley, popped in his hometown of Mobile, Ala., for second-degree marijuana possession, a misdemeanor offense in Alabama. He was held at the Mobile County Jail and eventually released on $1,000 bail.

"We had complaints from a citizen that a vehicle was speeding through the neighborhood, more than once," said Mobile police spokeswoman Ashley Rains. "An officer noticed the vehicle and pulled him over."

This was at 12:30 Tuesday afternoon in the Morningside Manor subdivision. Marijuana was found in Fairley's possession. Nobody else was arrested.

...and now he's in trouble again:

Lions’ Nick Fairley arrested again, clocked doing 100 mph on Ala. highway
By Dave Birkett / Detroit Free Press
Monday, May 28, 2012 - Added 2 hours ago


DETROIT — Nick Fairley is in trouble again. This time, for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and attempting to elude police.

Fairley, the Lions’ first-round pick a year ago, was arrested for the second time in less than two months at 1:13 a.m. Sunday by Alabama State Troopers, the Alabama Department of Public Safety said in a release.

According to the release, Fairley was traveling 100 mph in his 2010 Cadillac Escalade when he passed a police car patrolling westbound Interstate 10. Fairley initially refused to yield to emergency lights and sirens, and "showed signs of impairment" when he eventually stopped, the release said.

Lisa Burdett of the Alabama State Troopers said in an email that Fairley, who was arrested on DUI charges and issued traffic citations for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and an open container of alcohol, declined a breathalyzer test.

Never one to suggest suspensions, but I don't see any reason the league, or team, should allow this man on the field until after he has completed and thouroughly supervise substance abuse program. The man may just be too stupid to deserve to play.

Appears this manchild may finally have a babysitter:

Nick Fairley to receive fatherly tutelage from Lions DC

Nick Fairley has spent most of this offseason generating headaches for the Detroit Lions. The organization has been criticized for failing to discipline the second-year defender for multiple arrests, but defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham plans to take a hands-on approach.

"As far as Nick is concerned, he knows this is going to be personal between the two of us," Cunningham told the Detroit Free Press on Monday. "And I say that like a father. I'm going to do whatever I can to help him and I know the organization's done that and so has everybody else. He was surprised because I didn't tongue-lash him for about two hours. But I knew he'd already gotten that from eight different people. So I took the approach that I'm going to take care of him."

Fairley was arrested in May for driving while intoxicated and eluding police. In April, he was arrested for possession of marijuana. He's among four of Detroit's 2011 draft picks that have made headlines this offseason for all the wrong reasons.

The upshot: The team has allowed Fairley to participate in organized team activities and stated publicly he isn't in danger of losing his spot in the lineup. Mixed messages abound, but the team believes Fairley will find a way to settle in. If he doesn't, Cunningham won't be far behind.

"As much as I possibly can, personally, I told him wherever he is I'm going to go find him," Cunningham told the newspaper. "If I have to go see his family, whatever I have to do to get him squared away. Some of these kids, they come from different areas. They're not all from Birmingham. They come from tough, tough backgrounds. And the thing about Nick that really throws you -- and I can't speak for (Mikel) Leshoure (arrested twice for marijuana possession), but I really like him as well -- is I want them to succeed in the worst way."
