Lions 'Get Information' on Kalvin Pearson, Accused of Choking Pregnant Girlfriend
Posted Apr 29th 2008 8:31AM by Michael David Smith

Detroit Lions safety Kalvin Pearson is charged with what may be the most sickening crime related to an NFL player since Rae Carruth, and the Lions' response is a fascinating case study in the way that NFL teams deal with players who get into off-field trouble.

Pearson was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman and domestic battery by strangulation after a woman who says she is pregnant with Pearson's child called police and said he grabbed her hair and neck and choked her, "making it difficult for her to breathe." Police identified and took photos of "red marks and bruising all around her neck."

Here is the Lions' response:

"We'll get as much information as we can right now," Lions president Matt Millen said after the NFL draft Sunday. "We'll get all the information, and then we'll deal with it after we find out all the facts."

Other NFL teams have acted swiftly when players have been charged with less serious crimes by simply cutting the player, saying they won't allow one player to tarnish the organization. The Lions, however, won't do that, because they're already on the record as saying they signed him because of his great character. And if there's one thing we know about the Detroit Lions as an organization, it's that they don't admit their mistakes.

So the Lions won't follow the lead of the Steelers with Cedrick Wilson; they'll follow the lead of the Steelers with James Harrison. They'll "gather information" designed to justify keeping Pearson on their roster.

Quite honestly, Millen's comments are really no different than the Steelers' response after James Harrison was arrested. :noidea: :scratchchin:

Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said the team is gathering information on the charges, but consider the matter a personal concern of Harrison's.

We pay these guys to play a very violent game and then we act shocked when that violence leaks in to other areas of their lives.

We pay soldiers to go to war and kill. It's not acceptable for them to come home and do the same.
