Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes has acknowledged that he was the other driver in what police say is a drag race that ended with Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus crashing his car into a tree.
Hughes didn’t admit to any legal wrongdoing, but he did confirm that he’s the other driver and said that no other players were involved, according to ESPN.com.
“I was driving my vehicle, but like I said, it’s an ongoing investigation with the Hamburg police,” Hughes said. “I’m going to wait for them to figure out what they’re doing.”
Dareus is facing three misdemeanor charges in connection with the incident. Police have not said if Hughes will also be charged.
Hughes is still participating in the Bills’ Organized Team Activities. The Bills and Dareus have mutually agreed that Dareus will not participate in OTAs while he continues to deal with legal issues stemming both from the car crash and from a previous arrest for possession of synthetic marijuana.
