Parents, take notice: it might not be the best idea to send your kids to driving school with Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. NFL Around the League writer Dan Hanzus reported that Suh received a ticket on November 15th for “failure to use due care and caution”.
Suh has had his fair share of traffic tickets in his time with the Detroit Lions. This marks the fourth traffic incident that Suh has been involved in since his senior season at Nebraska.
Reports out of Lathrup Village, Michigan state that Suh was passing several cars in the right lane on the highway while traveling at a very high speed, and Suh cut off another car as a lane was closing, nearly causing an accident. Authorities are reportedly looking into the validity of the ticket and Suh might be relieved of his latest penalty, reports Hanzus.
The officer pulled over Suh and cited him, but Lathrup Village police chief William Armstrong said he’s reviewing the dash-cam video of the incident. The officer who cited Suh has a reputation for being aggressive about writing tickets, according to Armstrong.
“The charges that were issued on the ticket, we’re looking to make sure the charges fit,” said Armstrong, who added that he doesn’t necessarily agree with the charges but plans to meet with the city attorney Tuesday about the case.
This isn’t the first incident that came up with Suh this week, as the league determined on Monday that Suh would not be suspended for his kick to the groin of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. Suh could still be fined for the incident with Schaub.
Suh has regularly been in the news for trouble either on or off the field ever since he was drafted by the Lions in 2010. The Lions have become known as a gritty team on the field, and Suh is the perfect representation of that. But at some point, the organization will have to decide whether or not Suh and his troubles are worth over $10 million a year.

I’m a huge Lions fan, perhaps the biggest one that I know. I love this team and want them to do well, but even I think that Ndamukong Suh is out of his mind if the Lions are going to win “multiple Super Bowls” in the future.Sure, add some free agents and a few good draft picks, and this team is gonna be a powerhouse. The problem I have with him saying this, is not that...

Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended. For now.
The NFL decided Monday not to suspend Suh for the controversial lineman’s kick to Matt Schaub‘s groin during the Lions-Texans Thanksgiving game. It was the right call by the NFL, but we’d all be crazy to think Suh won’t land in hot water again at some point, and the Lions therefore need to start taking matters into their own hands...

Matt Schaub offered “no comment” on Thursday when asked about Ndamukong Suh kicking him in the groin during the Houston Texans’ win over the Detroit Lions. During an interview with SportsRadio 610 in Houston on Monday, he was not quite as tight-lipped.

“No,” the Texans...
Earlier in the week, Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub told Houston radio station SportsRadio 610 that he wouldn’t want Ndamukong Suh as a teammate and that Suh wasn’t “Houston Texan” worthy… whatever that means.

Goodell says he hasn'...
