Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is accused on sideswiping a motorist on Thursday, then berating the driver and leaving the scene of an accident, reports Fox 2, a Detroit television station.

Steve Vines said was on his way into work Thursday morning when he and other drivers merged onto a ramp. He says the driver behind him in a black Range Rover sped around him and sideswiped his car.  Vines got out of his Escort and the other driver, whose taillights were damaged, started yelling.

“All three of us got over.  He rode up on my butt,” said Vines. “As we’re going up the ramp, he just punched it, went right around me…. He just sideswiped me.”

Vines said he called the Dearborn, Mich. police, and Vines told the authorities the vehicle that hit him drove inside the Lions facility. The police  instructed Vines to go to the Lions practice facility and wait for them to arrive.  Police reportedly are investigating.

“The fact that you hit me, you got to stop, and then just to be as arrogant and say, well, I’m going to take off, they can come find me over here,” said Vines. “I don’t know who this guy is at first and tell you the truth, I still didn’t realize it was Ndamukong Suh until I was told that’s who it was.”

Suh is already facing a lawsuit for injuries allegedly suffered by a motorist when Suh wrecked a car in Portland, Oregon earlier this year.

Suh is just a d!ck, plain and simple. His license should be suspended and he needs to learn to respect people.

Suh is anything but stupid. I've thought all along that he was emulating Sapp by trying to stay in the news so no one forgets him. My thinking is he is looking down the road already at one of those dream announcer jobs like Sapp has and knows he has to be in the news and relevant. All the little things he does is not enough to go to jail for but enough to get in the news.

Well at least we all know now for sure that Suh hit something this year.

Hey at least Suh didn't treat him like Evan Dietrich-Smith and stomp on him after running into his car. Suh is such an idiot! My prediction: Suh will be broke two years after football and the only job he will be able to get will be cleaning our horse stalls.

Another top-notch talent that thinks the world owes him for being so good.  Idiot and thug. How long will the Lions put up with him?  If he were a Steeler, would he still be on the roster?  A Patriot? A Giant?  Doubt it.   But a team with a player like this can't really release him either because a division rival will just pick him up in no time flat and then use him against you twice a year.  As long as he's not in jail or suspended.

I knew he should have gotten a refund from the Jack Nicholson School of Driving.

@Ernie Ernie So you're saying he's NOT stupid but that he would intentionally sideswipe another vehicle for publicity. Um, sorry, but that endanering someone for attention is one of the definitions of 'stupid'.

 @TyDahmer The Steelers clearly have no problem keeping a rapist on the roster.  Suh seems like a clown, but getting in a few fender benders is nothing compared to actually raping another human being.

 @Boron His problems go way past a few fender benders and you know it. He's already been fined three times and has had 9 personal foul penalties which were intended mostly to maim or severely injure another player, most of anyone in the league with number of games played.  He plays and acts like he's owed something, he's no more than a highly paid felon.  He'll be behind bars less than three years after he's done playing, guaranteed.

Race Card? As Jerry Seinfeld would say..."Really?". The Race Card? My feeling is that the only people who use the race card, are the real racists. Let's not try to explain our arguments in a logical manner, let's just throw down the race card so no one can challenge us. You sir, are a schmuck.

 @TyDahmer I don't follow football closely enough to know of Suh's problems beyond what's happened on the field and what's noted in this article.  And again, none of that comes even close to the depravity of being a rapist.  But for some reason, Big Ben gets a pass on that account, but people are quick to say that Suh is entitled and call him a thug.  I wonder why that is...Maybe if Suh was white and Ben was black things would be different.
