Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl defensive lineman Marcell Dareus has gotten into further trouble with the law.
Already facing felony drug possession charges in Alabama, Dareus was arrested last week in Hamburg, N.Y. and charged with three misdemeanor and four vehicle and traffic charges stemming from a car race, according to the Buffalo News.
Dareus was arrested and is accused of leaving the scene of an accident and reckless endangerment, reckless driving and participating in an illegal speed contest, speeding, unsafe lane change, failure to keep right.
Last week, Dareus, who was benched for being late to team meetings last season, said he's not a bad guy.
“They believe in me,” Dareus said last week of the Bills. “They know that I’m not a trouble guy. They know I’m not the type of person that’s trying to look for any trouble.
“I’m not trying to do anything. Things happen and we’re moving forward and they know I’m going to grow into the guy they want me to be.”
