Fairley Apologizes

Detroit Lions lineman Nick Fairley publicly apologized Friday for his recent arrests in Alabama, saying his actions were inexcusable and did not meet the standards expected of a pro athlete. Fairley, a 2011 first round draft pick from Auburn, is one of three Lions with off season problems with law enforcement. He was arrested in Mobile County,Alabama on May 27 after a state trooper said he was traveling at 100 mph in his Cadillac Escalade. He was cited for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and open container. He was also arrested April 3 in Mobile, Alabama for possessing marijuana.
