The Lions’ off-the-field run-ins with police this offseason have been so abundant that they probably could fill an entire season of “Cops.”

The latest incident resulted in the team releasing cornerback Aaron Berry, who was arrested for the second time in less than a month after allegedly pointing a loaded gun at three people in Pennsylvania over the weekend.

All the arrests have prompted one unnamed Lions player to speak publicly about his disappointment with his teammates:

One Lions player told me just now: “This s— has to stop. We’re becoming the laughing stock of not only the NFL but all of sports.”

He’s got a point. Berry’s latest arrest marked the seventh time a Lions player was in handcuffs since the season ended. In June he was popped for a DUI after reported driving his BMW into two parked cars. Berry joins Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure on a dubious list of Lions players who have been arrested twice this offseason.

It’s almost like these guys are competing to win a jar full of money stashed in the locker room. Does anybody have the stones to go a third time in the back of a squad car?
