Aaron Berry's DUI Latest Trouble With Detroit Lions

It's safe to say that former Pitt cornerback Aaron Berry is having a year to forget.

Back in January, he called out Detroit Lions fans, accusing them of being poor and now, reports surfaced of him picking up a DUI. Berry's apparent DUI was made uglier by the fact he reportedly fled the scene:

Berry reportedly struck two parked vehicles, then left the scene on foot. A witness who followed him called police and he was arrested at 4:45 a.m.

4:45 a.m.? As Jim Rome frequently says, nothing good can happen by being out after midnight. That's particularly true when you're slamming back drinks and then getting into a vehicle.

It's not just Berry, though, who's given the franchise trouble this year. The team has seen a steady stream of players finding their way into trouble. You've got to wonder when the Lions will say 'enough is enough' and make an example out of someone.

But for Berry, this is flat out a knucklehead move, if true. It would be bad no matter when it happened, but this may have been the worst possible time.

Berry has not only made an impact on the team, but he's in contention for a starting spot this season, as I wrote just a few weeks ago. For this to happen now couldn't have come at a worse time.

It's possible he still wins the spot if the team is in desperate need of help at corner. But these actions won't help him win the job.

Berry's troubles this year are really frustrating as a Pitt fan that wants to see him do well. If he was a high draft pick and expected to be a starter in the NFL, it might not be that way. But to watch someone climb from the undrafted ranks and work his way up to this spot, then potentially throw it away ... man.
