Looks like the "news" on this one is completely overblown, though, since it's only a minor traffic violation.

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20121128/SPORTS0101/211280387/Video-shows-officer-telling-Suh-he-almost-caused-crash-?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE

That being said, the Lions may be forced to look at whether they're going to keep Suh. I love the guy on the field and think his behavior off it is exaggerated by a reactionary media, but he doesn't seem to be learning. He's likely an adrenaline junkie and Schwartz made a good point (though he was referring to all players) - he needs to hire a full-time chauffeur.

As far as his future, again - he's a very good football player that at this point is probably actually underrated. The fact remains, however, that he (and Stafford and Johnson) is eating up a lot of cap space and I'm not sure the production the team gets out of him matches the cap and reputation hits he causes. Cut him? Trade him? Hope he grows up? What do you guys think?

Keep him. You don't build winning programs by cutting every problem child and building around character rather than talent... see Marinelli era

Titus Young I feel completely different about as his problems extend onto the field. Aside from the stomp last year, Suh's really do not.

There is absolutely no reason to cut him.

So because Suh sucks at driving we should cut/trade him.

Seems legit.

Get him to fling poo more accurately and make better decisions when flinging it?

This was reported the day after thanksgiving, didn't concern me at all. He really just needs to fork out the dough and hire a driver.

Agreed, would probably be cheaper than his insurance with all those points on his license.

I think he can probably afford it.

He came out said he wrong, then charged him. Very confusing scenario.

Police Chief still says video evidence lacking. He is not one pushing it

I heard yesterday that there has been confirmation and the ticket is going to stand. I don't have a source, unfortunately though so take it for what it's worth. It was reported on 97.1 and someone had been in contact with the police department I believe.
