Bears linebacker Lance Briggs hasn’t exactly had the best of weeks. First the Bears lose badly to the Lions at Ford Field, then the mother of his newborn child sues him, and now today he pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident. The latest incident took place on August 27th after Briggs’ Lamborghini careered into a light pole and a concrete bridge support in Chicago. Due to his guilty plea, he will be under court supervision for a year and will pay $485 in fines.
Briggs was offered to perform 15 days of community service focusing on educating young people about the importance of safe driving by Cook County Judge Earl Hoffenberg. “The judge was more than fair, more than fair,” defense attorney Frank Himel said after the announcement. Briggs left the Lamborghini after he crashed it alongside the expressway back in late August.
