Fox Sports Detroit:
In football, they say the tape doesn't lie.
The same can be said for 911 calls.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been accused of leaving the scene of an accident last week by the driver of the other vehicle, Steve Vines.
Suh and Vines were involved in a fender-bender the morning of Oct. 11 near the Lions' practice facility in Allen Park.
WJBK-TV, the FOX television affiliate in Detroit, is now reporting that Suh actually called 911 before Vines did to report the incident.
Suh called at 6:28 a.m.
"I have a guy that just cut me off and I tried to go around him, and now he tried to hit me when I went around him after he cut me off," Suh said during the call. "I don't trust this person. I just took his license plate. I'm a Detroit Lion and I'm going to take myself to work, which is right here, and can the police meet me there, please?"
Vines, meanwhile, called at 6:29, according to police records.
"I just got sideswiped by a guy really bad, and he's trying to take off," Vines told the 911 dispatcher. "He just left the scene and took off through the light and pulled in the training facility."
Police closed the case after calling it a minor accident in which fault couldn't be determined. There were no arrests or tickets issued.

It’s not easy to get anything out of Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, but it seems like he wants to remain with the Lions when his contract is voidable after the 2014 season.
Speculation about Suh’s desire to remain in Detroit arose when his sister and public relations manager Ngum Suh tweeted what initially looked to be a cryptic post on her brothers desire to stay with the Lions.
It appears Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did the right thing after all by making the first call to 911 when he was involved in a two-car incident last week on the Southfield Freeway.
Suh called 911 at 6:28 a.m. Oct. 11 after the Range Rover he was driving collided with the 1999 Ford Escort that Stephen Vines, 43, of Livonia was driving. Vines called 911 at 6:29 a...
Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh attempted to clear up speculation that he is counting down the days until he can join another team after his his sister and public relations manager, Ngum Suh, randomly posted, "Thank u Jesus!

Records Show Lions DT Suh Made First Call To Police After Accident -
When a Detroit area man accused Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of sideswiping him and leaving the scene of an Oct. 11 accident, Suh’s past on- and off-field transgressions made the story seem plausible. One week later, however, 911 calls obtained by the same television station that reported the original...
When a team can put up the sort of offensive numbers that the Detroit Lions can, it is easy to ignore what they do defensively. So far in the 2012 season, the Lions defense is giving up an average of 324 yards of total offense, good enough for ninth best in the league.
The strength of the Lions’ defense lies in its front four. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is still a terror...
Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams is participating in his first practice since undergoing knee surgery recently.
Williams had knee surgery on September 25 after injuring it this offseason. He was limited in practices prior to the surgery, and had been on the sidelines prior to today.
However, Williams was fully participating in the first 30 minutes of practice media members...
Lance Louis has thus far been the most consistent offensive lineman on the team during the 2012 season. Louis has been a solid run blocker and an even better pass blocker. However to this point in the five games he's started he hasn't faced a player of the same caliber as Ndamukong Suh.
Suh has been a dominant force since his arrival in the NFL. He leads the league...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) The Detroit Lions are averaging a little more than two touchdowns in the fourth quarter this season. Finding that same production before the start of the final period has proved elusive.
The Lions (2-3) have scored 73 points in the fourth this season, trailing only Denver's 79, and both victories came after final-period rallies. Detroit scored...
If one was struggling to locate a list of top running backs in the NFL they would only need to review the Detroit Lions schedule -- making the task of stopping Monday night's opposing running back Matt Forte a challenge, but not necessarily foreign.
Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams is not participating in today's final practice before Monday's game against the Chicago Bears.
Williams, who is recovering from knee surgery, did not practice this past Wednesday, but was on the field Thursday and Friday. Detroit may have given Williams today off to rest, or he might not be ready to play.
In addition, Detroit Lions...
Lions rookie cornerback Jonte Green or veteran Alphonso Smith will likely start against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
The Lions ruled cornerback Jacob Lacey (concussion) out for Monday's game, while rookie cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) is listed as doubtful. Bentley was limited in practices this week, and it is very unlikely he will play.
As a result, Green...
Detroit Lions (2-3) at Chicago Bears (4-1)
This week, I put the Bears 1st in my Power Rankings. With the exception of the Thursday Night loss to Green Bay, the Bears have looked great this season, winning every game by 16 or more and only surrendering 7 sacks in 4 games. While you can’t completely ignore what happened on Thursday Night Football, it’s unreasonable to put too much...
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught a touchdown pass against the Eagles last week, but it was nullified when the referee ruled Johnson pushed off on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
"There was hardly any contact," Johnson told Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. "I was just feeling where I was at. I went back and watched it on film and I was like, 'Come on, ref...
The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears will meet for the 165th time ever on Monday night.
The Bears lead the all-time series 94-65-5. Last season, they split the season series with Detroit winning the first game 24-13 in Week Five and Chicago winning the second game 37-13 in Week Ten.
The Bears are coming off a bye week and are currently on a three-game winning streak outscoring opponents...
