HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Police in Harrisburg, Pa., say Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry faces DUI and other charges stemming from a weekend accident in his hometown.

Authorities say the 24-year-old, who played college ball at the University of Pittsburgh, was arrested around 4 a.m. Saturday after driving his vehicle into parked cars and attempting to flee. Police say he was arrested a short distance away. No one was hurt.

Police say he faces suspicion of DUI, failure to stop and render aid and other counts. They're all misdemeanors.

The team says it's disappointed in reports of Berry's arrest, saying it's "not the standard of behavior we expect." Berry says in a statement that he offered a "sincere apology."

Berry played in 11 games last season, starting three. He had 26 tackles.
