Kalvin Pearson Arrested

Lions safety Kalvin Pearson was arrested this morning in Tampa, and if what he did was true, I don't want this scumbag to be on Detroit anymore.

Former Bucs safety Kalvin Pearson is in a Tampa jail after getting arrested on charges of domestic violence, including domestic battery by strangulation, according to Hillborough County jail records.

Pearson, 29, was booked this morning at 7:48 a.m. at Orient Road Jail, with two felony and one misdemeanor charges; aggravated battery of a pregnant female, domestic battery by strangulation, and obstructing or opposing an officer.

What an idiot.  That's about the only way to describe him after reading that.

I imagine the Lions will address this issue after the draft, but should safety now become a need for the Lions again?  Better yet, should we expect Kenoy Kennedy to get signed again if Pearson is released?  I guess it's premature to say that Pearson is gone, but he should be if these charges are true.
