WRENTHAM, Mass. – Former Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has pleaded guilty in a hit-and-run crash that injured three people and will serve a year of probation.
Spikes appeared Wednesday in Wrentham District Court, where he admitted negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of personal injury, operating an uninsured vehicle, speeding and a marked-lanes violation.
State police found a damaged Mercedes-Benz Maybach luxury car belonging to Spikes abandoned in the median of Interstate 495 in Foxborough on June 7. At about the same time, police responded to a report a Nissan Murano SUV had been struck from behind by a vehicle that left the scene. Three people were treated for minor injuries.
The Patriots cut Spikes after the accident.
An attorney for Spikes hasn't returned a call seeking comment.
This story has been corrected to show the player's surname is Spikes, not Spokes.
