New, comments

Half of the Bills' projected starting defensive line was involved in the car racing incident that eventually led to Marcell Dareus' second arrest in May. Jerry Hughes reportedly was involved, as well.

The Buffalo News is reporting that Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes was the second driver in a car race involving teammate Marcell Dareus.

Unlike Dareus, who was arrested and is now facing three misdemeanor charges (as well as four minor traffic violations), charges have not been filed against Hughes, though that could change at some point.

The incident occurred last Friday, when Dareus allegedly crashed his white Jaguar into a tree in front of the Mongolian Buffet restaurant off of Route 179. Per a Hamburg Police Department statement, the white Jaguar was seen racing a black Camaro, prompting calls to the station prior to the accident.

Hughes, who turns 26 this August, was acquired in a trade with Indianapolis last May. In his first season with the Bills as a situational pass rusher, he accumulated 10 sacks. Hughes and Dareus are two of the Bills' four projected starters on the defensive line in the Bills' 4-3 defense.
