Giants kicker arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run crash
CHICO, California (AP) - Alcohol was suspected in an accident that led to the arrest of New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas in Northern California, the authorities said on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old Rosas reportedly did not stop at a red light and plowed his Chevrolet SUV into the side of a van in the city of Chico on Monday, the California Highway Patrol said.
Rosas drove on and then got off the SUV when it broke, the CHP said in a statement. A short time later, he was arrested on suspicion of escaping and driving license. It wasn't immediately known whether he had a lawyer.

Rosa's hands, legs, and bare feet were covered in blood when officials found him, officials said.
"Alcohol impairment is believed to be a factor in the collision," the CHP statement said.
Witnesses told investigators that the Chevy SUV passed double yellow lines at speeds of over 160 km / h shortly before the crash, the authorities said.
Rosas, who comes from Chico, joined the Giants in 2017 and was selected for the Pro Bowl a year later.
"We are aware of the situation and have contacted Aldrick," said the Giants in a statement. "We currently have no further comment."
