Fox Sports Detroit:
Ndamukong Suh avoided a suspension this week after kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin.
Now he's hoping to have as much luck with more legal trouble stemming from his checkered driving record.
FOX 2 News in Detroit reported Monday night that Suh was pulled over in Lathrup Village for failure to use due care and caution. According to the report, Suh was driving at a high rate of speed on Southfield Road on Nov. 15, passing cars in the right lane. As the lane came to an end, he swerved left and narrowly avoided hitting another car.
The Lathrup Village police chief said that he planned to review the charges with the city attorney on Tuesday to decide if they should be reduced or dropped.
"The charges that were issued on the ticket, we're looking to make sure the charges fit," Chief William Armstrong told FOX 2. "The way that the ticket was written I don't necessarily agree with, but if the city attorney agrees, it would go forward as written."
The incident is at least the fourth that Suh has been involved with on the road in the last 12 months. Last December, while suspended for his Thanksgiving Day stomp of Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith, he hit a tree in his hometown of Portland, Ore. Two women who were riding in Suh's car claimed to be injured, and one of them is now suing Suh for a million dollars.
Suh was then pulled over in May, again in Portland, for driving 91 mph in a 55-mph zone and making an improper lane change. The third incident came last month when he sideswiped another driver on the Southfield Freeway near the Lions' practice facility in Allen Park. On that occasion, Dearborn police were called to the scene by both drivers and did not issue any tickets.
Now comes the ticket in Lathrup Village, which was disclosed on the same day that the NFL announced they would not suspend Suh for the kick he delivered to Schaub's groin in Detroit's Thanksgiving Day loss. The league, however, did leave the door open for a fine, and Suh has faced renewed criticism as a dirty player by NFL players and pundits.
