 LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs was charged with leaving the scene of an accident after crashing his Lamborghini and leaving it alongside an expressway on the city's North Side, Illinois State Police said Monday.
After meeting with police Monday afternoon, Briggs also was cited for failure to give immediate notice of an accident and improper lane usage, said Master Sgt. Luis Gutierrez.
Briggs was released after posting $100 bond. He is scheduled to appear Oct. 4 in a Cook County court.
``As a result of interviewing Mr. Briggs, it was determined that he was the driver of his 2007 Lamborghini,'' police said in a statement.
Officials said the 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago, which had crashed into a light pole, was discovered around 3:15 a.m on Interstate Highway 94.
Bears coach Lovie Smith indicated the team will not discipline Briggs, whose ``spirits were good for being in a one-car accident.''
Defensive end Adewale Ogunleye said Briggs told him about the crash on Monday morning.
``He said that he crashed the car or something, and I had had to get to meetings, so I didn't have a chance to talk to him,'' Ogunleye said.
Briggs, who has not addressed the media since reporting to training camp late last month, did not make himself available during Monday's open locker room period. And he had left practice to meet with authorities by the time reporters were admitted.
Briggs' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was not available for comment, according to his brother Jason, who works for Rosenhaus Sports Representation. Jason Rosenhaus also declined comment.
