    Detroit Lions’ Dan Campbell on Alex Brown: ‘We’re lucky nobody died’

    The Detroit Lions do not have a curfew in place during this summer’s training camp due to the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols, and even if they did, coach Dan Campbell said it likely would not have kept cornerback Alex Brown from injuring two-people in a wrong-way car accident early Sunday morning.

    Brown, who was waived by the Lions hours after the incident, was arraigned on four felonies in 36th district court Tuesday after he drove the wrong way down a freeway and crashed into an oncoming car.

    His former teammate, Charlie Taumoepeau, a passenger in the crash, remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

    “It’s an awful incident and awful accident and it’s something certainly we don’t condone, and we brought it up (to our players) cause it’s one of those eye-openers,” Campbell said. “It’s not OK to jump in a car after you drink because bad things happen. That’s what Uber’s out there for. Don’t even take your car. … Just Uber. Uber when you’re going out there, come home.”
