Lions President Rod Wood provides new details on Cameron Sutton situation

USA Today

Detroit Lions team president Rod Wood on Monday provided new details on the situation surrounding Cameron Sutton, who was released by the team after it discovered he is wanted on a domestic violence warrant.

Wood said he was on a call with league officials when he learned of the warrant. Team officials sought out Sutton and found he had shown up unexpectedly to work with the strength staff at the team facility, Wood said.

“As soon as that call (with league officials) wrapped up, we kind of quickly convened to talk about it,” Wood said. “We were able to reach Cam and talked about it and suggested he get counsel and do the right thing to turn himself in. After that, we met the rest of the day and the following morning to decide to release him.”

As of the morning of March 26, Sutton had not yet turned himself in despite the team’s advice.

The warrant stems from Sutton being charged with domestic battery by strangulation in an incident that allegedly occurred on March 7, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

That office has indicated that they have had no luck in reaching the cornerback and they believe he is no longer in possession of his phone. They have had no contact with him, nor have the Lions since he was in their facility.
