A week after team management defended the character of its players, Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry was arrested over the weekend after his car struck multiple parked vehicles.

It was the sixth arrest of a Lions' player this offseason.

"We are extremely disappointed in the reports involving Aaron Berry and the incident in Pennsylvania this past weekend," the Lions said in a statement. "This is not the standard of behavior we expect from any member of our organization. We have strongly and repeatedly emphasized the need to be accountable on and off the field, which makes this incident with Aaron all the more disappointing. We will have further comments regarding this situation when appropriate.

Berry was arrested in the early morning hours Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, causing accidental damage to an unattended vehicle, failure to stop and provide information to law enforcement, according to ABC News. He was arrested at 4:45 a.m. in Harrisburg after a witness allegedly saw Berry exit his vehicle and walk away from the scene. The witness reported the incident to police.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz and general manager Martin Mayhew have said the team isn't undisciplined and considered the previous incidents a matter of a few players giving a good locker room a bad name.

The continued legal woes won't help that argument.

Berry reportedly refused to cooperate with police and declined a breathalyzer test.

Running back Mikel Leshoure (marijuana possession) and Nick Fairley (marijuana possession, DUI) were each arrested twice in the offseason and offensive lineman Johnny Culbreath was arrested for marijuana possession.
