Nick Fairley Was Arrested For Marijuana Possession in Alabama

Lions and former Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been arrested in Alabama and charged with second-degree marijuana possession.

From the Press-Register:

Fairley, 24, was held at the jail on $1,000 bail. Mobile police spokeswoman Ashley Rains said that citizens in the Morningside Manor neighborhood of Mobile, a subdivision west of Navco Road, called police complaining about a car speeding through the neighborhood several times about noon.

Police spotted the vehicle, which was being driven by Fairley, about 12:30 p.m., and marijuana was found in the football player’s possession, Rains said. No one else was arrested with Fairley, she said.

Fairley is the second Lions’ 2011 draft pick to be arrested for marijuana possession this offseason. Running back Mikel Leshoure has been arrested twice in two months.

Cop must have been an Alabama fan.
