Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested Monday morning after being involved in a hit-and-run accident in Chico, Calif., according to a police report released by the California Highway Patrol. Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash.

According to the report, a copy of which was obtained by Newsday, witnesses said Rosas’ Chevrolet SUV was traveling north on SR-99 passing over the double yellow line at a speed estimated to be 100 miles per hour. The car failed to stop for a red light and collided with a Ford pick-up truck.

The driver of the SUV was seen by witnesses leaving the scene of the accident, running away on foot. Officers went to Rosas’ home, where the car was registered, but did not find him there. After police returned to the scene of the accident to collect evidence, Rosas was seen in the area. According to the report, officers “observed his hands, legs, and bare feet were covered in blood." Rosas identified himself and was arrested and transported to Enloe Medical Center, from where he was eventually released. He was then booked into Butte County Jail for misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving with a suspended license. According to the report, “alcohol impairment is believed to be a factor in the collision.”

Rosas made the Giants as a free agent in 2017 and made the Pro Bowl in 2018 after converting 32-of-33 field goal attempts. Last year, he made 12-of-17 attempts.

Earlier in the offseason, Giants second-year cornerback DeAndre Baker was arrested on armed robbery charges in Florida. Baker has denied the charges.

Rosas and Baker are now subject to the NFL’s personal conduct policy and could face fines and/or suspensions.
