Nick Fairley is having an interesting offseason. And it’s not the good kind of interesting, either. Nearly two months after a separate run-in with the law in Alabama, Fairley found himself in hand cuffs again on Sunday.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday morning, Fairley was arrested in Mobile and charged with DUI and attempting to elude police, according to WALA-TV.  State troopers also say he was ticketed for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and having an open container in the car. He posted bail at $1,750 and was released around 9 a.m.

On April 3, Fairley was busted in Mobile for marijuana possession. That was during a brief stretch of time when three Lions players — all drafted in 2011 — were all arrested for being caught with weed. Fairley’s latest arrest now totals five this year for that draft class.

The Lions, who drafted Fairley 13th overall out of Auburn, have invested a lot in him. It has to be alarming for the franchise that Fairley hasn’t proven he can’t stay out of the back of a cop car. But if there’s a team used to having first-round picks becoming huge disappointments, it’s the Lions.
