Dareus was arrested on Friday and charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, participating in an illegal speed contest as well as traffic violations, according to a Hamburg, N.Y., Police press release obtained by NFL Media.
Police say the 24-year-old lineman was arrested after witnesses saw in his white Jaguar traveling with another car at a high rate of speed near a local shopping mall.
The alleged drag race ended when Dareus' Jaguar left the roadway near the entrance of a Mongolian Buffet, continued over the grass, onto a parking lot before striking a tree out in front of the restaurant. The crash caused extensive damage to Dareus' sports car and the tree, according to the police.
Dareus addressed the media last Wednesday for the first time since the incident in Alabama.
"They believe in me," Dareus said, per the Buffalo News. "They know that I'm not a trouble guy. I'm not trying to do anything. Things happen, and we're moving forward, and they know I'm going to grow into the guy they want me to be."
Two days later he was arrested.
He is due back in court June 17.
