Aaron Berry banned 3 games
ESPN.com news services
Former Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry was suspended three games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Berry is currently a free agent after he was released by the Lions in July after he was arrested twice this offseason in Pennsylvania.
He was arrested in late July on three charges of simple assault. 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.
Berry has been in the NFL two seasons. He started three games last season for the Lions and one in 2010.
