The Detroit Lions had seven offseason arrests last season. This offseason hasn't been too kind to the Lions either. They've had two so far after defensive end Ronnell Lewis was arrested in his role in a bar fight in Norman, Oklahoma over the weekend.
Lions defensive end Ronnell Lewis was Tasered twice over the weekend and arrested on three misdemeanor charges for his role in an alleged bar fight in Norman, Okla., police said Tuesday.
The 22-year-old was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace, public intoxication, and interfering with official procedure after fighting inside and outside a bar, according to an affidavit provided by police to NFL.com.
According to the report, Lewis was thrown out of the bar for fighting with another man, and the fight continued outside. Once officers arrived, Lewis failed to comply with commands to stop fighting and police Tased both men involved in the altercation.
Lions officials haven't had too much to say about the incident other than the normal we're gathering information quote.
"We are aware of the incident involving Ronnell Lewis," the Lions said in a statement. "We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time."
It never seems to stop with the reckless off field behavior. You don't want a team full of Boy Scouts, but they must exercise better judgement when they're away from the team.

Ezekiel Ansah has been selected by the Detroit Lions with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. NFL.com illustration The loss of Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch were a clear indication that Lions were looking to add new, fresh talent on the defensive line and GM Martin Mayhew also has a history of taking the best player available. Ezekiel Ansah is a raw, but NFL...
With Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler already in the fold, many would scratch their heads at the idea of the Detroit Lions drafting a tight end in 2013. While it’s true the team likely won’t spend a higher pick on a tight end, they could always use depth at the position, being there’s a need for a dependable third option.
In fact, the Lions have already looked at three...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A week before coaching him at the Senior Bowl in January, Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz hadnt even heard of Brigham Young defensive end Ezekiel Nana Ziggy Ansah.
On Thursday night, Ansah completed his fascinating rise when the Lions selected him with the fifth pick overall in the NFL Draft.
Its been a humbling experience, a crazy journey, Ansah said.
The Detroit Lions selected Ziggy (Ezekiel) Ansah with the fifth pick in the NFL Draft, and as he came to the stage folks started to notice his interesting glasses. After a closer look it was confirmed that Ziggy was wearing 3D glasses with no lenses in them. Maybe now he will be able to afford some prescription lenses?

5. Matthew Stafford - Selected #1 overall - 2009
Our fearless leader. Even though Stafford has had outstanding yardage in the last 2 years, he is unproven as far as a successful QB. The Lions ended last year a dismal 4-12 after coming off a 10-6 playoff run the year prior, and one must question where the blame lies. Is it with the coach, or the QB that leads them on the...

Here's a mini-mock draft to try to sort out what might and should happen with the Lions:

Not that the Madden Curse really affected Calvin Johnson all that adversely in 2012. Anyway, Barry Sanders is the cover retiree for the next installment of the Madden franchise. That’s Lions players on the cover two years in a row. Greatest franchise triumph of the modern era? I say that jokingly but I’m afraid to give it more thought because it’s not too far from the truth...
