The Detroit Lions cut ties with cornerback Alex Brown earlier this week, and now he’s back in the news for an even more negative reason.
According to reports, Brown is being charged after a non-fatal car accident in which he was allegedly driving under the influence. Additionally, Brown’s passenger was Charlie Taumoepeau, whom the Lions also recently cut.
According to a source, Brown's passenger, who suffered a neck injury and was transported to the hospital, was tight end Charlie Taumoepeau. This explains why he was cut today with a non-football injury list today. https://t.co/d4T3cz5HKDFeatured Videos
