HAMBURG (WKBW) Hamburg Police have confirmed that Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus was involved in a motor vehicle accident last Friday. A report from the Buffalo News claims Dareus is now facing several charges stemming from a car race, including leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

Police tell Eyewitness News that the incident occurred around 3:15 Friday afternoon, on Milestrip Road near McKinley. Authorities say they are continuing their investigation, but did not have any word on charges at this point.

If Dareus was involved in any type of hit and run accident that did not cause injuries, police say that normally ends with a court appearance ticket and not an arrest.

More information is expected on Tuesday.
