New York Giants placekicker Aldrick Rosas has been arrested after allegedly t-boning a car and then leaving the scene. TMZ was the first to report the arrest.

The Giants issued the following statement:

“We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Aldrick. We have no further comment at this time.”

From the TMZ report:

Law enforcement officials say witnesses saw the 25-year-old — who made the Pro Bowl in 2018 — going around 100 MPH and driving erratically at around 8:25 a.m. in Chico, Calif., when he allegedly failed to stop at a red light.

Cops say he plowed straight into the side of a pickup at the intersection ... but kept on driving, despite disabling the vehicle he struck.

Cops say Rosas’ black Chevrolet SUV broke down shortly after the crash ... but claim witnesses saw the NFL player exit the ride and run.

TMZ also reported that when police found Rosas near the scene his “hands, legs and bare feet were covered in blood.”

Rosas has been booked in the Butte County Jail on the hit-and-run and for driving on a suspended license. Police say they believe alcohol was involved.

Rosas, 25, has been. the Giants’ placekicker for the past three seasons. He struggled in 2017 and 2019, but made the Pro Bowl in 2018 when he made 32-of-33 field-goal attempts. Over three seasons, he has made 62-of-75 field-goal attempts (82.7 percent) and 86 of 94 extra-point tries (91.5 percent).

Rosas signed a $3.259 million one-year restricted free agent tender to stay with the Giants this past offseason.
