    Lions assistant arrested for nude driving and drunken driving
    By Jim Schaefer and Nicholas J. Cotsonika

    A Detroit Lions assistant coach was arrested twice in the last two weeks, once for allegedly driving drunk and once for indecent and obscene conduct, the Free Press has learned.

    In the latter incident, a Dearborn police ticket describes the coach as “driving on public street without any clothes on. (NUDE).”

    I thought that was a joke at first. I've never heard of anybody driving naked, that's just strange. But then I remembered anything can happen in the lions organization, and that if it happened to any team, it would be the lions!!!

    [Yahoo! Sports] Lions assistant coach arrested twice in two weeks (AP)

    A Detroit Lions assistant coach was arrested twice in the past two weeks -- once while police say he was driving nude and a week later on suspicion of drunken driving. Police in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn said Joe Cullen, who coaches the team's defensive line, was pulled over Aug. 24 and ticketed on suspicion of indecent and obscene conduct.

    GREAT...first we had Wayne-cocaine Fontes and now we got a boozer driving around with his pants around his ankles. If the Lions don't can this clown immediately I'll never follow them again...wait a minute.......I hear an ECHO, echo, echo..."it's deja vu all over again".

    The Ford's should've turned the team over to a new CEO instead of the car company. At least with cars they had half a clue.

    I'm just glad it wasn't Jim Leyland, any of the Pistons, or Steve Yzerman.

    On Around the Horn's, Showdown Segment, Jay Marriotti indicated that Cullen's toughness of driving around nude will probably garner him a promotion in Matt Mullens scheme of things and Jackie McMullans said that Matt Millen was probaly skinny dipping with Cullen and stole his clothes:lol:

    I don't think driving naked in your car should be against the law. If you get out, sure. But nobody's going to see you if you're driving around at night. I see a car as an extension of your house.

    PTI's Jason Whitlock calls driving nude >Porky Piggin :flypig: and he lost his girlfriend because she was "porky piggin" with former Chiefs LB Derrick Thomas.

    Urban Dictionary: porky pigging it

    I thought maybe Chamiollionaire's rap song Ridin Dirty :gun1: would best describe what Cullen was doing but based on the urban dictionary I was only a little close

    Urban Dictionary: ridin dirty

    My favorite on this list is #5 but I guess even Cullen couldn't do this.

    This dude should have been terminated immediately. Because he is Marinelli's boy he probably will be able to keep his job.

    Since Marinelli has arrived the team has been sanctioned for having inappropiate workouts, then there was the traveling on the same day as a preseason game chaos and now this mess with his assistant coach.

    The more things change the more they remain the same. Same Ole Lions.
    :rolleyes:

    Marinelli wasn't talking to his coaches LOL!

    I find it funny that Millen said Cullen asked for 'treatment'. To the best of my knowledge, alcoholism (the guy got fired by UMiss for the same stuff in 05) & sexual perversions are not something that can get corrected over the time frame of this season...much less, by next Sunday. Can the players POSSIBLY take this coach seriously this season OR ever?

    As always, the Lions are inept at making rational decisions under Ford ownership. Cullen should have been gone this morning. Millen should have been gone a long time ago.

    Didn't he check himself to rehab? He is not going to be at the first game anyway. This is no punishment it is a cop out.

    Some guys like driving automatics, others prefer stick shifts.

    Apparently Eddie Griffin feels the same way.
