HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) - The Hamburg Police Department confirms former Buffalo Bills player, 40-year-old Ruben Brown, was arrested and charged with DWI, following too close, and imprudent speed.

The accident happened Friday night on Abbott Road near Richmond Avenue in Hamburg.

Brown rear ended a vehicle, in what was determined as only a two car accident, no passengers in either car. Brown was not injured and refused a breathalyzer test for alcohol.

The driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries.

Brown later tweeted this "@Ruben7974: I have to apologize to everyone. I will have to work hard to regain the respect you gave me. Thankful everyone is alive."

Brown played 181 games with the Buffalo Bills starting in 1995. That year, he was drafted 14th overall by the Bills in the NFL Draft. He was inducted into the Buffalo Hall of Fame last year.
