Report: Ex-NFL star Terrell Suggs facing assault charge

Former NFL star Terrell Suggs was arrested on an assault charge Tuesday night in Arizona, TMZ Sports reported.

Suggs, 41, was booked into the Maricopa County jail on one count of assault and one count of offense against public order, a spokesperson for the Scottsdale Police Department told TMZ Sports. He was later released.

The charges reportedly are related to an incident on March 10, but no further details were available Wednesday morning.

Suggs, who played college football at Arizona State, was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2003 and the Defensive Player of the Year in 2011.

His Hall of Fame-caliber numbers include 139 sacks, 37 forced fumbles, 15 fumble recoveries, seven interceptions and 895 tackles across 244 games (226 starts) with the Baltimore Ravens (2003-18), Arizona Cardinals (2019) and Kansas City Chiefs (2019).

A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Suggs was a first-round pick (10th overall) by Baltimore in 2003 and won Super Bowl championships with the Ravens (SB XLVII) and Chiefs (SB LIV).

Ex-Lions DB Cameron Sutton turns himself in

Former Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton turned himself in to authorities in Florida, weeks after “evading law enforcement” on a charge of domestic violence.

Sutton showed up at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday and was booked in Tampa. An arrest warrant was issued on March 7 on allegations of aggravated battery-domestic violence.

“After weeks of evading law enforcement, this man has finally made the right choice to turn himself in,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “Domestic violence has no place in our community, and no one is above the law here in Hillsborough County.”

He is facing a third-degree felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation.

The Lions released Sutton a day after authorities announced they were looking for him.

Sutton, 29, joined the Lions last season on a three-year, $33 million deal signed in March 2023 after six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

He started all 17 regular-season games with the Lions, posting 65 tackles, an interception, one forced fumble and six passes defensed. He started Detroit’s three playoff games as well, adding eight tackles and breaking up three passes.

Georgia RB Trevor Etienne faces DUI, other charges

Georgia running back Trevor Etienne faces four misdemenaor charges, including driving under the influence, after his arrest Sunday morning.

According to online records, Etienne posted bonds totaling $1,883 and was released from the Athens-Clarke County Jail at 5:27 a.m., about an hour after he was booked.

He also was charged with reckless driving, failure to maintain lane/improper driving on the road and affixing materials that reduce visibility of windows/windshield.

The DUI charge was labeled as “less safe,” which means he can be convicted even if his blood-alcohol content measures below 0.08 percent.

“We are aware of the charges and are currently in the process of gathering additional information,” a university statement read. “This is a pending legal matter and we will not have further comment at this time.”

Etienne, 19, transferred from Florida after the 2023 season. In 24 games over two seasons with the Gators, he ran for 1,472 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also had 30 receptions for 238 yards and a touchdown.

He is the younger brother of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne and was projected to start for the Bulldogs when they open the season against Clemson on Aug. 31.

Under Georgia policy, student-athletes convicted of DUI must serve a suspension of at least one game.

This is the latest driving-related issue for Georgia and the first known incident in 2024. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday that at least 15 members of the Bulldogs program were arrested or cited for DUI or speeding last year.

On Jan. 15, 2023, offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting department staff member Chandler LeCroy were killed in a crash, with their deaths attributed to both alcohol and speeding.

New Michigan DL coach resigns after arrest

Recently hired Michigan defensive line coach Greg Scruggs resigned Thursday following an arrest for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Wolverines head coach Sherrone Moore confirmed the resignation but declined further comment, telling ESPN it is “a university matter.”

Ann Arbor police arrested Scruggs on Saturday after finding his car stopped in an intersection with its hazard lights on. His blood-alcohol level was double the legal limit for Michigan, officials said.

Scruggs, who coached the defensive line at Wisconsin last season, was hired to join Moore’s staff on March 6. He replaced Mike Elston, who followed former coach Jim Harbaugh to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Scruggs, 33, was a defensive end who played in 18 games in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks (2012, 2014) and Chicago Bears (2015-16).

He began his coaching career at the University of Cincinnati (2018-21) and was the New York Jets’ assistant D-line coach in 2022.

The defending national champion Wolverines began spring practice on Monday.

New Michigan DL coach Greg Scruggs suspended after arrest

Greg Scruggs, who was named Michigan’s defensive line coach just 10 days ago, was arrested on a drunk-driving charge early Saturday and suspended from the program.

“Greg made an unfortunate mistake and was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated,” Michigan coach Sherrone Moore said in a statement. “He made no excuses and has taken accountability for his actions. The football program and athletic department have suspended Greg indefinitely while we review details of the incident.”

The Wolverines announced his hiring on March 6. He was the defensive line coach at Wisconsin in 2023 and the assistant line coach with the New York Jets in 2022.

Scruggs, 33, knows Moore from their days at Louisville, when Scruggs was a player and Moore a grad assistant. In late 2011, Scruggs was arrested in Kentucky on a drunk-driving charge and dismissed from the team before Louisville met North Carolina State in the Belk Bowl.

Scruggs appeared in 18 games between 2012-16 for the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears, recording 11 tackles and three sacks.

Former Arkansas State star arrested in poisoning deaths

A former Arkansas State football star and Tennessee Titans scout has been arrested in last year’s poisoning deaths of his girlfriend and her unborn child in Nashville, Tenn.

Blaise Taylor, 27, was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder and arrested by U.S. Marshals on Thursday night in Utah. Nashville police said Taylor is “alleged” to have fathered the child.

Taylor is accused of poisoning Jade Benning at her Nashville apartment on Feb. 25, 2023. She was rushed to a hospital after Taylor called 911 and reported that she was suffering an allergic reaction.

Benning’s 5-month-old fetus died two days later, and she passed away on March 6 — her 25th birthday — without ever speaking to police.

Following months of investigation by police, scientists and the medical examiner, authorities determined Benning had been “poisoned without her knowledge” after Taylor visited her home.

Taylor was a four-year starter as a defensive back and return specialist at Arkansas State from 2014-17. A captain and first-team All-Sun Belt selection, he set the school record for career punt-return yards (1,151) — returning one for a touchdown in each of those seasons.

Taylor later worked as a scout for the NFL’s Titans for four years before serving as a defensive analyst at Utah State in 2023. Earlier this month, he joined the defensive staff at Texas A&M, where his father, Trooper Taylor, is the Aggies’ running backs coach.

Former Seahawks great Richard Sherman arrested on suspicion of DUI

Former NFL player and current broadcaster Richard Sherman was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Washington State Patrol said.

Sherman, 35, was booked into King County Correctional Facility in Seattle at about 4:30 a.m. Pacific time. No other information was made available, according to multiple media reports.

A member of the NFL’s all-decade team for 2010-19, Sherman was a five-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All-Pro defensive back.

Selected in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks out of Stanford, he played 11 NFL seasons for the Seahawks (2011-17), San Francisco 49ers (2018-20) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021). He recorded 37 interceptions, returned three for touchdowns, forced five fumbles and recovered seven while totaling 495 tackles in 144 games (136 starts).

He won Super Bowl XLVIII with Seattle over the Denver Broncos in the 2013 season.

Sherman has been an analyst for Amazon Prime Thursday night pregame and postgame shows for two seasons, and he joined Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” sports talk show in 2023.

He pleaded guilty in March 2022 to first-degree negligent driving, second-degree criminal trespass and speeding in a construction zone in a July 2021 incident in Redmond, Wash., a Seattle suburb. According to media reports, he received a 90-day suspended sentence with two years of monitored supervision, and the two-year period has not expired.

Two adults charged with murder in Super Bowl parade shooting

Two men have been charged with felony murder on Tuesday in the mass shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration last week.

Lyndell Mays of Raytown (Mo.) and Dominic M. Miller of Kansas City each face one count of second-degree murder, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced in an afternoon news conference.

Mays and Miller also have been charged with two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. They are both being held on $1 million bond.

Local radio personality Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed in the shooting and at least 39 others were injured, per the Kansas City Star.

Per Peters Baker, Mays was involved in an argument with another person and drew a handgun. Miller and others, in turn, responded by drawing their weapons, but Miller’s weapon allegedly fired and killed Lopez-Galvan, Peters Baker said.

“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day — every single one,” the prosecutor said. “While we are not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”

Two juveniles were charged in connection to the shootings at the celebration.

The shootings occurred outside popular Union Station on Wednesday on a day in which roughly 1 million people turned out to celebrate Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11. There were more than 800 police officers in the vicinity.

LSU RB Trey Holly arrested in Louisiana shooting

LSU running back Trey Holly is facing three felony charges, including attempted second-degree murder.

He turned himself in to authorities in Farmerville, La., one of three arrests made on Thursday in connection with a shooting last week that injured two people.

Holly is also charged with aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of a weapon and is being held on a $512,000 bond, Union Parish Sheriff Dusty Gates confirmed to The Advocate.

The incident occurred at an apartment complex at about 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 9. One woman was in critical condition after being shot three times and a man was shot once in his lower leg, according to police.

Investigators determined that three shooters fired multiple rounds following an earlier altercation at the location.

LSU issued a statement saying it is “aware that a student-athlete has been arrested in relation to a shooting in Union Parish.” The school said the student-athlete has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities.

Holly was a four-star recruit in the Tigers’ 2023 recruiting class out of Union Parish High School in Farmerville, where he broke the state’s all-time rushing record with 10,523 yards and scored 160 touchdowns.

The 5-foot-7, 192-pound Holly played in three games for LSU in 2023 and rushed 11 times for 110 yards and a touchdown. He was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week after running for 91 yards — including a 67-yard touchdown — in his Oct. 21 debut against Army.
