Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry was reportedly arrested this past weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence among other charges.

As if it seemed like things couldn't get any worse, the legal fiasco that has been the Detroit Lions offseason got that much more complicated when a report surfaced on Tuesday that cornerback Aaron Berry was arrested this past weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, two counts of causing accidental damage to an unattended vehicle or property and two counts of failure to stop and give information to law enforcement.

Berry was reportedly driving his car near the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel early Saturday morning when he struck a parked car.

Via WXYZ.com:

Berry allegedly exited his car and began to walk away from the scene. A witness followed him and called the police.

Berry was arrested by Officer Duane Pyles at 4:45am and transported to the Harrisburg Police Department booking center.

According to a source, Berry was not cooperative when asked for personal information during the booking process and also refused to submit to a breathalyzer test.

Berry was issued a series of summonses for the charges and was released. He is awaiting arraignment.

Berry was in Harrisburg to attend a charity softball event hosted by former teammate LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles. It is not believed that Berry participated in the event following the arrest.
