DETROIT— Detroit Lion's player Nate Burleson is getting a lot of attention from Detroit media sources over his pizza fiasco, in which he totaled his car and broke his arm in two places while trying to stop a pizza from sliding off of his car's seat.

His Instagram account now features photos of his totaled car and the infamous Happy's Pizza strewn across the seat, and it also boasts a joke about Burleson being the fifth ninja turtle because of his love for the cheesy pie. The story is becoming bigger than anticipated, with both Deadline Detroit and even the Detroit Free Press running articles. As for Happy's Pizza? They don't appear to have weighed in with any comments on the shenanigans just yet. [-ED-]
