Ex-Lions CB Cameron Sutton enters pretrial diversion program

Former Detroit Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton has entered a pretrial diversion program to resolve his domestic violence case, according to court records.

Sutton entered the batterers' intervention program April 8, according to the Hillsborough County (Florida) records, which show he isn't allowed to have weapons or firearms and will have to undergo a mental health evaluation.

He also is subject to a probationary period and isn't allowed contact with the victim, according to the records.

Sutton was charged with misdemeanor battery after he turned himself in to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office on March 31 after being wanted for weeks by police.

Police had been unable to locate Sutton since March 7, when an arrest warrant was issued for him. They had responded to a call early that morning at a house in Lutz, Florida.

The Lions released Sutton on March 21, the day after the team found out about the warrant for his arrest.
