Mobile native Nick Fairley, who played his high school football at Williamson and college football at Auburn, was arrested for the second time this offseason this morning. Fox 10 News is reporting that Fairley was charged with driving under the influence and attempting to evade the police. He was arrested at 1:00 AM on I-10 near Tillman’s Corner. Fairley was also ticketed for reckless driving, no proof on insurance, and for having an open container in his vehicle. The football star posted $1750 bond and was released by 9:00 AM Sunday morning. He was previously arrested on April 3 for marijuana possession.
Fairley had a great career at Auburn, where he won the Lombardi award as the nation’s best lineman and helped the Tigers win the 2010 national championship. His first year in the NFL was not as spectacular, as Fairley struggled with a foot injury that limited him to 10 games. In those games, he recorded just 11 tackles and 1 sack. The Lions are an up and coming team in the NFL, but these off the field problems could hurt their progress.
