Car-racing charges dropped against Bills DT Marcell Dareus
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus reached a plea agreement with prosecutors to have car-racing charges against him dropped, reports the Associated Press.
Dareus was facing misdemeanor charges for crashing his car into a tree in Buffalo last year. Instead, Dareus will be issued two traffic violations for failing to keep right and imprudent speed.
If Dareus had pleaded guilty to the charges, which included reckless endangerment, Dareus would've faced NFL disciplinary action, but the league is expected to review the plea agreement.
