I'm Going To Need Someone To Bail Me Out For Driving...While Naked

Detroit Lions defensive line coach, Joe Cullen, has been keeping Dearborn, Michigan police busy over the past two weeks.

Last week, on September 1, Cullen was arrested and charged with DUI. Police records state that his BAC was .12(the legal Michigan limit is .08).

The more interesting incident occured two weeks ago, on August 24, when Cullen was arrested and charged with "indecent and obscene conduct". Apparently police discovered that Cullen was driving naked, and stated that "alcohol was involved".

And this isn't the first time that Cullen has had troubles with the law. In March of 2005, while he was a defensive line coach for Ole Miss, Cullen was arrested and charged with public drunkeness. He plead not guilty, but was convicted of the misdemeanor charge in June of '05 and ordered to pay a $182 fine. He also filed a grievance against Ole Miss for $434,000 for wrongful termination, as he was fired a week after the arrest. That case was settled in July of 2005, though details weren't publicly disclosed.

So yeah, it seems that Matt Millen is running a real tight ship in Detroit. I wonder if he has Barry Sanders' phone number on speed dial for occasions like this?
