(WXYZ) - Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been arrested for the second time in two months, this time for allegedly driving under the influence and attempting to elude police.
The Mobile County Sheriff's Office confirmed the arrest to WXYZ, including a link to a web page dedicated to showcasing the mugshots of citizens recently arrested.
Alabama state troopers say the 24-year-old passed a state trooper early Sunday morning at 100 mph in his Cadillac Escalade in unincorporated Mobile County. After initially refusing to stop for the trooper's emergency lights and siren, Fairley pulled over and seemed impaired.
Fairley, who was arrested on April 3 for marijuana possession, was stopped just after 1:00am on Interstate 10 southwest of downtown Mobile, AL near the intersection of Highway 90.
Fairly was also cited for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and open container.
The Alabama State police arrested Fairley, and he spent time in the Mobile County Sheriff's Office jail.
The Lions issued the following statement Sunday afternoon: "We are aware of the reports and are in the process of gathering more information."
