Naked Pigskin

Well, here’s something you don’t read about every day:

A burger joint drive-thru worker called police after Lions assistant coach Joe Cullen allegedly pulled his SUV up to the window and placed an order in the nude.

The worker, who took down Cullen’s license plate number, told Dearborn officers after the late-night incident on Aug. 24 that “the suspect did nothing obscene, other than being naked at the drive-thru.”

Cullen, a first-year defensive line coach, was arrested and charged with indecent and obscene conduct in the incident. On Sept. 1, a little more than a week later, he was arrested again and charged with drunken driving, also in Dearborn.

On Thursday, the Lions suspended Cullen for Sunday’s season opener against the Seattle Seahawks, the Free Press has learned. Cullen, however, is expected to continue to coach the defensive line during practices.

All he’d have to do is claim that he’s dabbling in performance art as a hobby, and he could probably arrange for NEA funding…
