NEW YORK (77 WABC) — New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested on Monday in California after t-boning a car and fleeing the scene, TMZ reported. Police believe alcohol was involved.
The alleged incident occurred in Chico, CA around 8:25 a.m. on Monday after the Giants’ kicker failed to stop at a red light, according to TMZ. Witnesses say they saw Rosas going around 100 mph and driving erratically when he hit the side of a pickup truck at an intersection.
Rosas drove away before his black Cheverlotte SUV eventual broke down. After police arrived on the scene, they found Rosas near the crash site with blood on his hands, legs and bare feet.
He eventually admitted that the SUV was his and Rosas was taken to a nearby medical center for evaluation, and then booked at Butte County Jail, the TMZ report stated.
“We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Aldrick,” the Giants said in a statement on Tuesday. “We have no further comment at this time.”
Rosas has been the Giants starting kicker since 2017 and he signed his one-year, $3.259 million restricted free agent tender in April.
