Report: Lions DB Aaron Berry arrested Saturday on suspicion of DUI, both Lions and Berry release statement


According to a report by WXYZ’s Tom Leyden, Lions defensive back Aaron Berry was arrested Saturday morning in Harrisburg, PA 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.

Leyden cites sources who say Berry was driving near the Hilton Harrisburg Hotel where he proceeded to hit a group of parked vehicles. Berry allegedly then got out of his vehicle and left the scene on foot only to be tailed by a witness who eventually called the police.
Berry was then arrested by Officer Duane Pyles at 4:45am and transported to the Harisburg Police Department where he was booked.
To make matters worse, Berry was reportedly uncooperative during the booking process refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test, refused to give any personal information and according to further reports falsified information.

Berry was released from jail and is awaiting an arraignment date.
The Lions did release a statement on the Berry situation…
“We are extremely disappointed in the reports involving Aaron Berry and the incident in Pennsylvania this past weekend.

“This is not the standard of behavior we expect from any member of our organization. We have strongly and repeatedly emphasized the need to be accountable on and off the field, which makes this incident with Aaron all the more disappointing. We will have further comments regarding this situation when appropriate.”

Berry also released a statement to Lions insider Tim Twentyman on

“I want to offer a sincere apology to the Lions organization, Lions fans, the coaches and all my teammates for my actions this past weekend. This is not the example I want to set for young people and it’s certainly not what my team and coaches expect from me.

“I promise to do everything in my power to make sure this never happens again.

“I understand these are just words and it will be my future actions that ultimately will speak for me.”

Berry is the fourth different Lions to be arrested during this offseason. This is also the sixth arrest for the Lions organization this offseason.
