Berry's suspension stems from two offseason arrests. The first came when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on June 23. Less than a month later, Berry was arrested for allegedly pulling a gun on three people in Harrisburg, Pa.
Since Berry was with the Lions at the time of the arrests, they can still be held responsible for paying fines due to the player's misconduct, says Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. It has been a pretty tumultuous offseason for the Lions, as Mikel Leshoure was suspended in June for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, while Nick Fairley could be disciplined because of a DUI arrest in late-May.
Berry, 24, appeared in 12 games over two seasons with the Lions. He accumulated 32 tackles and an interception in limited duty.
