Lions’ Ndamukong Suh gets traffic ticket

LATHRUP VILLAGE, Mich. — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was issued a traffic citation by a police officer who said he saw Suh driving fast and passing cars from the right lane of a suburban Detroit roadway.

The Lathrup Village officer gave Suh a ticket on Nov. 15 for driving without due care and caution.

Police Chief William Armstrong tells The Associated Press on Tuesday he’s not sure the citation will hold up. Armstrong says he watched video footage of Suh’s driving that day and thinks “the charge doesn’t fit.”

When Suh played at Nebraska he pleaded guilty to negligent driving and paid a $60 fine after crashing into three parked cars. He has been sued for $1 million by a woman who claims she was injured when Suh was in a car crash last December in Portland, Ore., and he was accused of sideswiping another driver in suburban Dearborn earlier this year.
