According to the Detroit Free Press, Suh was investigated for allegedly threatening a Comcast cable employee with a pellet gun, but was cleared by police.
Spencer Ferrell, a Comcast employee, contacted police shortly after 9 p.m. on August 16th and reported that Suh had threatened him with a gun while he was working on a utility pole in the backyard. Ferrell also claimed that Suh cursed at him and yelled at him to leave the property.
Surveillance video can sometimes be good for the homeowner if they are doing nothing wrong, unlike the Hernandez case. In this situation, surveillance video showed that Suh’s version of events were supported. Suh claimed to have heard rustling and grabbed the pellet gun to investigate.
“At no time in the video did Mr. Suh point the pellet gun at Mr. Ferrell in a threatening manner,” the report said. “The video shows the pellet gun in Suh’s right hand pointing at the ground. After several minutes, Mr. Suh has it over his right shoulder, pointing away from Mr. Ferrell.”
Suh was just fined $100,000 for an illegal hit and may not be the most popular figure, but I think we can all side with Suh when it comes to choosing between he and a cable company.
