LATHRUP VILLAGE, Mich. (AP) - Police say a traffic citation issued to Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn SOO) in suburban Detroit will stand.

Lathrup Village Police Chief William Armstrong said Tuesday he wasn't sure the Nov. 15 citation for driving without due care and caution would hold up after having watched video footage of Suh's driving that day.

But after consulting with the city attorney, Armstrong said Wednesday the decision was made to go forward and have Suh "either pay the fine or fight the ticket.''

An officer wrote up Suh after seeing the third-year pro driving fast and passing cars from the right lane.

Suh has been sued for $1 million by a woman who claims she was injured when Suh was in a car crash last December in Portland, Ore.
