On Thursday evening, there were some rumblings on Twitter that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was involved in a hit and run. Specifically, the rumblings stemmed from someone who claimed that Suh hit her father's car and left the scene. Details were scarce, but there was a lot of smoke.
Now there is an actual report out from FOX 2's Amy Lange. According to the report, Suh allegedly sideswiped a man's car at 6:20 a.m. on Thursday. Suh then allegedly proceeded to berate the driver of the car he hit. From FOX 2:
"I look over at him and he started yelling at me, 'Trying to cut me off. Get out of the way.' And I just said, 'Really?'" he explained. "He just started yelling about getting the hell out of his way and cutting him off."
Vines said the guy left the scene of the accident. He called 911 and watched the man drive into the Lions' practice facility. Dearborn Police told Vines to meet them there, but when he arrived, he said the driver gave him another earful.
According to Steve Vines, the driver of the car that was hit, Suh "advised" him to leave when they pulled up to the Lions practice facility. Now Dearborn Police are investigating the incident. Vines says he just wants his car fixed, which is something Suh can more than afford to pay for if he did indeed sideswipe the car.
While Suh is merely accused of hitting Vines' car for now, it's not like Suh has a clean driving record. Another incident wouldn't come as a big surprise considering he's been involved in a few accidents since joining the Lions, most notably one last December that resulted in a $1 million lawsuit against him.
To borrow a line from Suh, "true men" don't hit somebody and then leave the scene. If Vines is telling the truth, Suh has some serious explaining to do.
