Ndamukong Suh Lied To Police About Car Accident

KGW in Portland, Oregon is reporting that Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh lied to police about the cause of his car accident this past weekend.  Suh was driving a 1970 Chevrolet Couple in downtown Portland very early Saturday morning and lost control of the car and crashed into a tree.

Suh told Police that he was trying to pass a taxi cab when he lost control.  According to two passengers, however, there was no taxi cab.  Suh simply gunned the vintage car at the stoplight and raced down the street until he lost control.

Three passengers were injured in the crash, despite Suh's assurances to the 911 operator that everyone was fine.

Despite the fact that these passengers have come forward to inform the police of the real reason the crash occurred, the police do not plan to further investigate or charge Suh in any way.
“At no point did anyone there tell an officer that he [Suh] was driving out of control,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau. “The crash doesn’t meet our threshold for investigation which is vulnerable road user, DUI, or serious trauma injury.”
I guess giving false statements to the Police is not a reason to pursue this any further as well.  Suh is originally from Portland and has a few unexpected weeks of vacation after he was suspended by the NFL last week for stomping on another NFL player during a game.
