Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was investigated and cleared last month by Birmingham police for an incident in which he allegedly flashed a pellet gun at a cable repairman.

Mark Clemence the Birmingham deputy chief of police said no charges will be filed against Suh and that surveillance video taken from Suh’s home-security system support his version of events.

According to a case report Comcast employee Spencer Ferrell 22 called Birmingham police shortly after 9 p.m. Aug. 16 the day after the Lions’ exhibition loss to the Cleveland Browns to report that Suh threatened him with a gun while he was working on a utility pole in Suh’s backyard.

Suh did not respond to questions about the incident in the locker room nor after his news conference today. A Lions official declined comment.

In a written statement provided to police Ferrell said Suh cursed at him while pointing a gun upward and asked him to leave his property.

Ferrell told police that Suh never pointed the gun directly at him. Police wrote in their report that he initially thought the gun “looked like an AK-47.”

Suh was not home when police responded to the call but investigators interviewed him at the Lions’ team hotel in Dearborn that night according to the report.

Clemence said Suh was cooperative when questioned at the hotel and according to the report Suh said he heard rustling in the trees behind his house after he returned home “picked up a pellet gun that was in his garage … and looked through the scope towards the trees.”
