Buffalo Bills' Marcell Dareus due in court for alleged car race; charged after Jaguar hit tree

Eight months after crashing his car into a tree during an alleged race, Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus still faces a charge of reckless endangerment.

The football player is expected before a town judge in Hamburg Tuesday for a hearing on the misdemeanor count.

Dareus' lawer, Michael Caffery, turned down an offer to plead guilty to reckless driving early on, but in December, Caffery said he was still talking with the Erie County District Attorney's office about resolving the case without a trial.

The Bills' 2011 first-round draft pick was charged and also issued numerous traffic violations after crashing his 2012 Jaguar into a tree during an alleged race with teammate Jerry Hughes not far from Ralph Wilson Stadium on May 30.
