NFL’s Suh Continues Bad Week with his Wrecked 1970 Chevy Chevelle

Classic Cars

As far as bad week’s go, NFL player Ndamukong Suh had one of the worst last week.

On Thanksgiving day, between plates of food and copious amounts of adult beverages, I watched in horror and humor as Ndamukong Suh again lost his mind on the football field. Glued to the TV as the reigning NFL champion Green Bay Packers took on the recently-resurgent Detroit Lions, the latter's star DT Suh decided to slam his opposite on the Green Bay line's head into the turf before stomping on him (the CarBuzz team still hasn't forgiven his near-beheading of Cincy QB Andy Dalton in the preseason).

As time would eventually prove, Evan Dietrich-Smith, the player abused by the bruising tackle out of the University of Nebraska, got off light compared to what Suh did to his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. After the league suspended the standout for two games, Suh took a trip back home to Portland, Oregon and at around 1:15am last Saturday night/early Sunday morning, he tried to pass a parked taxi and crashed into a tree. Well, before he hit the tree, he made contact with a curb, light pole and drinking fountain. Talk about out of control at the end of a bad week.

According to Sgt. Peter Simpson of the Portland Police Department in an interview with the Detroit Free Press regarding the incident, he said concerning Suh "He wasn't drunk and wasn't driving crazy or anything. He wasn't a jerk. Our officers are trained to look for watery eyes, slurred speech, that kind of thing. Nothing like that. No odor of alcohol or anything like that. Without those factors there was nothing to lead us to believe he was under the influence." Thankfully neither Suh nor his two passengers were injured in the accident, save his classic tricked-out 1970 Chevelle.

The muscle car sustained some serious damage, as you can clearly see from the photos. Check them out and feel free to share your thoughts on one of the dirtiest players in the NFL wrecking his ride in the Pacific Northwest. Photos courtesy of KATU.com
