BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP)

Police in an affluent Detroit suburb have cleared Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of any charges for waving a pellet gun in front of a cable company worker attempting repairs to a line on the player's property.


Birmingham police say the cable worker thought the gun looked like an assault rifle and feared for his safety. They say Suh told them he feared for his family and said he'd be even more aggressive protecting them than he is on the football field.

Police say the confrontation happened Aug. 16. Police say Suh didn't point the weapon at the Comcast employee but waived it around.

Suh said Wednesday he's appealing the NFL's $100,000 fine for his illegal hit Sunday on Minnesota Vikings' center John Sullivan.
