Former Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes plead guilty on Wednesday morning to leaving the scene of a crash on I-495 in Foxboro. According to WBZ Radio, Spikes has been given a fine, a year probation, and he has lost his license. 

Spikes crashed his car early on the morning of June 7 and was later cited for speeding, driving negligently, leaving the scene of a crash and failure to stay in marked lanes.

Police said Spikes was driving his Mercedes Maybach sedan when it struck a Nissan Murano, causing minor injuries to a Billerica, Mass., man and woman and their 12-year-old son, who were all treated and released at a local hospital.

Spikes was not with is vehicle when police responded to the crash at about 3:30 a.m. Before fleeing the scene, Spikes was contacted by his car's on-board assistance service, which had detected a crash and called the vehicle. During that call, Spikes reported that he had struck a deer.

Spikes was released by the Patriots a little more than 24 hours after the crash was discovered. The hard-hitting linebacker was drafted by the Patriots in 2010 and played his first four seasons in the NFL before joining the Buffalo Bills as a free agent last season. Spikes was re-signed by the Patriots in May and spent less than a month with the team before his release. He remains a free agent.
