Detroit Lions' defensive back Cameron Sutton sought in Florida domestic violence warrant

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Detroit Lions defensive back Cameron Sutton is wanted on a domestic violence warrant in Florida, where authorities on Wednesday asked for tips to help find him.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which includes Tampa, said on the X social media platform that the warrant is for domestic battery by strangulation, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

The sheriff's office said Sutton may be driving a Jeep Grand Wagoneer with a Florida license plate. No other information was immediately provided. It wasn't clear if Sutton has a lawyer to speak for him.

"We became aware of the ongoing legal situation involving Cam Sutton this morning," the Lions said in a statement. "We will continue to monitor the situation and will not have further comment at this time."

Sutton, 29, signed a three-year, $33 million contract with the Lions in March 2023, appearing in all of Detroit's regular season and playoff games. Before that, the University of Tennessee product played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2017 to 2022.
