Imagine this man driving down the road...nude. Not something we all want to think about or even see but it did happen. He may not even be wearing pants in this picture. Hence the smile.
This man is Joe Cullen, a defensive line coach for the Detroit Lions. He's been arrested twice in the last two weeks. Yep that is correct and he's not even on the Cincinnati Bengals.
The first incident Cullen was driving without any clothes on. It happened Aug. 24 about 11:15 p.m., the night before the Lions flew to the west coast for a game against the Oakland Raiders.
Police stopped Cullen in his car, which was traveling eastbound on Michigan near Lapham Street. The ticket does not provide any other information about why Cullen allegedly was nude. The Lions said alcohol was involved.
He said he was driving over to Matt Millen's house. Not true but if he said that it would make a lot more sense.
Then a week later police again arrested Cullen, this time about 11:48 p.m. on Sept. 1, the night after the Lions lost their final exhibition game to the Buffalo Bills at Ford Field. This time he was just plastered with a .12 blood alcohol level with clothes on.
Cullen was fired from the University of Mississippi in early 2005 after an alcohol-related arrest at a restaurant. The Lions never called Mississippi for a reference. It's still hard to take the Lions and especially Matt Millen serious. I'm hoping they bring back the "Fire Millen" movement by season's end.
