DETROIT -- Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry has been arrested in Pennsylvania for the second time this offseason.
Harrisburg police said Berry was taken into custody early Saturday morning on three charges of simple assault. Gautsch said there "was a weapon allegedly brandished during the incident."
Berry, who is from Harrisburg, was also arrested in that area June 23 on suspicion of DUI, failure to stop and render aid from an accident and other counts. He was set to enter a diversionary program in that case. His second arrest was the latest bit of bad publicity during a troubled offseason for the Lions.
Running back Mikel Leshoure will miss the first two games this season without pay and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested twice in two months.
Berry is entering his third NFL season. He started three games last season and one the previous season.
