BOSTON (AP) - Former New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has been cited for rear-ending another vehicle on a Massachusetts highway then leaving the scene.
State police said Friday that Spikes is accused of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury, speeding, driving negligently and failure to stay within marked lanes.
Spikes' Mercedes-Benz Maybach was found abandoned in the median of Interstate 495 in Foxborough at about 3 a.m. Sunday with heavy front-end damage. At about the same time, police responded to a report that an SUV had been struck from behind by a vehicle that left the scene. Three people suffered minor injuries.
Police said their investigation determined that the Mercedes struck the SUV and Spikes was driving.
The Patriots cut Spikes on Monday.
Neither Spikes nor his agent have commented.
