Former Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton turned himself into the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) on Sunday night after “weeks of evading law enforcement,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

Sheriffs issued an arrest warrant for Sutton on March 7 after he allegedly battered a woman, charging him with aggravated battery-domestic violence. Sutton’s lawyers contacted HCSO on March 25 to inform them he’ll turn himself in, but he didn’t do so until March 31, the Sheriff’s statement said.

“Domestic violence has no place in our community, and no one is above the law here in Hillsborough County. My thoughts are with this woman as she continues to heal from this man’s gruesome actions,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in the statement.

Sutton signed a three-year, $33 million deal with the Lions before the 2023 season. The Lions released him March 21, one day after the Sheriff’s office made his arrest warrant public.

Lions president Rod Wood revealed that Sutton was in the Lions‘ practice facility when his arrest warrant was issued, Fox 2 Detroit reported.

“We learned about the warrant the same way everybody else did, on social media, and we were able to speak with Cam because he was actually in our building,” Wood told Fox 2. “He kind of showed up unexpectedly to work out.”
