Former Lions cornerback Cameron Sutton turned himself in to Florida authorities Sunday night after weeks of eluding police.

Eleven days ago, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office announced that they had issued an arrest warrant for Sutton. On Sunday night, the sheriff’s office released video of Sutton surrendering to authorities.

Sutton, 29, was wanted on a domestic battery charge after a strangulation incident at a home in Lutz, Florida, on March 7. Police have since been unable to locate him.

“On Monday, March 25, 2024, Sutton’s attorney contacted the HCSO Warrant Unit and informed us that he would be traveling to Tampa to turn himself in to authorities,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a news release. “Today, March 31, 2024, at 8:24 a.m., Sutton entered East Road Prison to surrender.”

The charge is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Lions team president Rod Wood said last week that Sutton was being shared by the sheriff’s office at the team’s facility in Allen Park, Michigan. Wood encouraged the team to commit to Sutton “doing the right thing” and seek counseling.

The Lions released Sutton the following day.

“After weeks of eluding law enforcement, this man finally made the right choice to turn himself in,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “Domestic violence has no place in our community, and no one is above the law here in Hillsborough County.”

Sutton signed a three-year, $33 million deal with the Lions a year ago after spending six seasons in Pittsburgh. He started all 20 games for the Lions last season, including the postseason.
