It’s been a bad week for the Lions.
A day after 2011 second-round draft pickMikel Leshoure made the wrong kind of headlines for, among other things, allegedly treating “wacky tobacky” like chewing tobacco, 2011 first-round pick Nick Fairley has been arrested for marijuana possession.
According to the Mobile Press-Register, Fairley has been charged with second-degree possession, a misdemeanor.
Police had received complaints about a car speeding through the Morningside Manor neighborhood. As it turned out, Fairley was driving the vehicle. Marijuana was then found in Fairley’s possession.
A Mobile native, Fairley played college football at Auburn before sliding to the middle of round one last April. A preseason foot injury limited him to 10 regular-season appearances, with no starts, in 2011.
