Ex-Lions DB Cameron Sutton turns himself in

Former Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton turned himself in to authorities in Florida, weeks after “evading law enforcement” on a charge of domestic violence.

Sutton showed up at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday and was booked in Tampa. An arrest warrant was issued on March 7 on allegations of aggravated battery-domestic violence.

“After weeks of evading law enforcement, this man has finally made the right choice to turn himself in,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “Domestic violence has no place in our community, and no one is above the law here in Hillsborough County.”

He is facing a third-degree felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation.

The Lions released Sutton a day after authorities announced they were looking for him.

Sutton, 29, joined the Lions last season on a three-year, $33 million deal signed in March 2023 after six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

He started all 17 regular-season games with the Lions, posting 65 tackles, an interception, one forced fumble and six passes defensed. He started Detroit’s three playoff games as well, adding eight tackles and breaking up three passes.
