ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes admitted Wednesday, he was on-hand when teammate Marcell Dareus crashed his Jaguar last Friday during an alleged street race.

“I know the facts. I was there, I was involved in it,” said Hughes.

Town of Hamburg police released a statement Tuesday, saying they were investigating to determine the driver of a second car involved – a black Camaro.

“Facts are the facts. When the Hamburg police get done doing their investigation and we get done doing this whole legal matter, the facts will come out,” said Hughes.

Dareus is taking the next two weeks off from the team’s OTA’s in Orchard Park.

“I don’t see it as being a distraction,” said Hughes. “It’s happening during the offseason. We’re not doing too much, but just getting ready for the season. We’re veteran players, we know how to conduct ourselves, we know how to get ready for this football season.”
