Aldrick Rosas had been charged with a trio of misdemeanors in an alleged hit-and-run traffic accident that took place last month, per the New York Daily News.

Rosas, the New York Giants 25-year-old placekicker, has reportedly been charged with reckless driving on a highway, hit and run and property damage, and driving with a suspended or revoked license due to a previous DUI of alcohol or drugs.

Rosas has a 2016 DUI conviction on his record.

Rosas was arrested June 15 after a high speed hit-and-run near Chico, Calif. Witnesses reportedly told police Rosas was driving 90 miles per hour or faster when he T-boned a Ford pick-up truck after speeding through a red light. He apparently fled the scene of the accident on foot. He was found with “his hands, legs and bare feet … covered in blood.”

California Highway Patrol said the accident occurred at approximately 8:25 a.m. and that “alcohol impairment is believed to be a factor in the collision.”

The Daily News reported that Rosas was never breathalyzed as he was arrested more than three hours later.

Rosas has been the Giants’ placekicker for three seasons. He made only 12 of 17 field-goal attempts in 2019, one year after making 32 of 33 field goals and earning Pro Bowl recognition.
