Detroit Lions defensive back Cameron Sutton is being sought by authorities in Florida in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident, as reported by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and TMZ.

The allegations against Sutton arose earlier this month when authorities indicated he might have been involved in a violent altercation with a woman in Florida.

“The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the alleged victim at approximately 4:52 AM on March 7, reporting that she had been physically assaulted by Sutton,” detailed a report from TMZ. “During the call, she expressed fear for her safety.”

Sutton was reportedly not present when law enforcement arrived at the scene. Efforts to locate him have been unsuccessful so far, with Sutton’s phone being turned off, as mentioned by TMZ.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office made a statement on Twitter alerting the public and seeking information to help locate Sutton.

“He is wanted for Aggravated Battery – Domestic Violence,” the post stated. “He may be driving a Jeep Grand Wagoneer with the Florida license plate FL-AZ33QB.

“If you have any information regarding Cameron Sutton’s whereabouts, please contact 813-247-8200.”

Reports from TMZ indicated that police initially tried to find Sutton at his residence in Pinellas County, followed by attempting to contact him, but without success.

Sutton, aged 29, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He spent the initial six years of his professional career with Pittsburgh before signing a three-year, $33 million contract with Detroit before last season.

In the 2023 season, he participated in all 17 regular-season games and all three of the Lions’ playoff matches. Throughout the regular season, he accumulated 65 tackles, of which 50 were solo, and made four tackles for a loss, along with one interception for 23 yards.
