The Lions released cornerback Aaron Berry on Monday following his latest arrest on three counts of simple assault.

Berry was arrested Saturday morning in Harrisburg, Pa., and later charged in the incident.

The arrest was the second of the offseason for Berry and seventh among Lions players.

Officials disclosed a firearm was involved.

Berry was remanded to enter a diversionary program in Harrisburg after he was arrested last month on suspicion of DUI. The Detroit Free Press reported that this arrest could put that arrangement at-risk.

Earlier this offseason, teammates Mike Leshoure and Nick Fairley were arrested in two separate incidents for each player.

The Lions are thin at the position. Their top cornerback in 2011, Eric Wright, signed with the Buccaneers in free agency. Rookie Dwight Bentley could benefit from Berry's release after a strong offseason showing.
