Lions’ Cameron Sutton sought in Hillsborough on domestic battery charge

TAMPA — The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton related to what deputies described as a domestic violence incident earlier this month in Lutz.

Sutton, 29, is wanted for domestic battery by strangulation, a Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said.

According to the spokesperson, deputies responded to a call from Sutton’s home in Lutz on March 7. When they arrived at 4:53 a.m., they found a woman at the residence who “had been battered.”

Sutton left the home before authorities arrived, and repeated attempts to reach him by phone have been unsuccessful, the spokesperson said. Sutton has not returned to the home or another he owns in Pinellas County.

Sutton played six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before joining the Lions last year. He played in all 20 of Detroit’s regular season and playoff games last season, including the division-round game against the Bucs.

Four days after the incident, the Lions acquired cornerback Carlton Davis in a trade with the Bucs.

“We became aware of the ongoing legal situation involving Cam Sutton this morning,” the Lions said Wednesday in a statement. “We will continue to monitor the situation and will not have further comment at this time.”

The Sheriff’s Office earlier Wednesday asked for the public’s help locating Sutton via a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

According to the post, Sutton may be driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee Wagoneer with the plate number of FL-AZ33QB. The Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone with information call 813-247-8200.
