 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Khalif Barnes drove through a yard, crashed into a tree and then left the accident scene last weekend, police said.
Barnes, already on probation for a drunken driving charge, was cited for careless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. He also was charged with violating a provision of his probation that limited his driving to work purposes.
According to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report, Barnes reported the accident just after 6:30 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived, they found Barnes' 2007 Mercedes crashed into a tree and the ignition key nearby in the grass, the report said. They estimated damage to the car at $10,000.
Police then went to Barnes' home, but he wasn't there.
``I realize I used poor judgment and I should have stayed with the car,'' Barnes told the Florida Times-Union, adding that he wasn't injured in the accident.
Barnes' attorney, Hank Coxe, told the newspaper that Barnes fell asleep while driving to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium for mandatory treatment for a sprained ankle.
Coxe said Barnes returned home, borrowed a car from a relative and then drove to the treatment session. Coxe said Barnes left treatment and went straight to the Sheriff's Office.
In July, Barnes pleaded no contest to drunken driving and was sentenced to six months' probation. He also had his driver's license suspended for six months, a penalty that allowed him to drive to and from work.
Coxe said he has documentation that the treatment Barnes was driving to was required by the Jaguars.
Barnes was arrested last November and then had an obscenity-laced rant about racist police and playing in a hick town. His comments were recorded by a video camera in the officer's police car. Barnes apologized for those remarks and said they were brought on by the stress of his arrest.
