Ndamukong Suh's latest traffic ticket will stand

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is facing yet another fine. This time it's not from the NFL, it's from a traffic citation he received in suburban Detroit back on Nov. 15.

Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh the certainly no stranger to being fined. His $30,000 fine from the NFL for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub came down on Wednesday, and later on that same day Lathrup Village police chief William Armstrong announced that Suh's traffic citation from Nov. 15 for driving without due care and caution will stand as well.

Suh got cited for driving at a high speed and passing cars from the right lane earlier in November, and now Armstrong says Suh will have to "either pay the fine or fight the ticket," according to an AP report. The NFL's fine is probably more of a concern for Suh, who he has maintained that the kick to Schaub was inadvertent, but the costs and causes of action are continuing to pile up for the young defensive star.

As noted in the SB Nation story on the Thanksgiving Day incident and fine, Suh has been fined a total of $77,500 by the league over the past three years, and if you include paychecks from his two-game suspension last year his transgressions have cost him $243,147 -- and that's just for on-field behavior.
