Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did not try to get away after he was in an accident last week, and actually called 911 before the other driver, who accused Suh of leaving the scene.

That’s the word from the police in Dearborn, Michigan, who released the 911 calls to Fox 2 in Detroit. Suh’s call came in one minute before the other driver’s, and Suh told the 911 dispatcher who he was and asked the police to meet him at the entrance to the Lions’ facility.

“I have a guy that just cut me off and I tried to go around him, and now he tried to hit me when I went around him after he cut me off,” Suh told 911. “I don’t trust this person. I just took his license plate. I’m a Detroit Lion and I’m going to take myself to work, which is right here, and can the police meet me there, please?”

The other driver may have thought Suh was trying to flee by driving off to the Lions’ private parking area, but the 911 call makes clear that Suh wanted to give the police his side of the story. The other driver called 911 one minute after Suh and told the operator, “I just got sideswiped by a guy really bad, and he’s trying to take off. . . He just left the scene and took off through the light and pulled in the training facility.”

The police say they couldn’t determine which driver was at fault in the accident and therefore won’t ticket either driver.
