(WXYZ) - Lions cornerback Aaron Berry has been arrested for the second time in a month, this time for simple assault in an incident that allegedly involved the brandishing of a firearm.
Originally reported by ProFootballTalk.com on Saturday, details of the incident were reported by the Detroit Free Press based on a phone conversation with a member of the Harrisburg, PA police department.
Berry was reportedly taken into custody at 2:30am Saturday morning after pointing a gun at a group of people from inside a car.
“Mr. Berry was taken into custody early Saturday and charged with three counts of simple assault on allegations that a firearm was brandished by Mr. Berry,” Corporal Kyle Gautsch of the Harrisburg City Police Department told DetroitLions.com.
This arrest is the Lions seventh of the offseason and the second for Berry. He was arrested for driving under the influence and hit-and-run after his car struck two parked vehicles earlier this summer.
