Giants K Aldrick Rosas Arrested For Alleged Hit And Run

Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested after an alleged hit-and-run in California (via TMZ). Cops say that Rosas was going 100 mph when he t-boned another car early Monday morning and they believe that he may have been intoxicated. 

Per the police report, Rosas was driving erratically before he blew through a red light. That’s when cops say he smashed into the side of a pickup truck and continued driving, instead of stopping. Moments later, when his SUV broke down, witnesses say Rosas took off running. When police arrived on the scene, they found Rosas walking nearby with his legs and bare feet covered in blood.

Unfortunately, this is not Rosas’ first run-in with the law. Court records show that in February 2016, roughly two months before the 2016 draft, he was arrested in California and charged with DUI and having a BAC of over 0.8% (via Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com). The DUI charge was ultimately dismissed, but Rosas pled guilty to the BAC charge and received 30 months of probation. According to Rosenblatt’s NJ.com colleague, Matt Lombardo, the Giants were aware of that incident prior to signing Rosas in 2017. He has been the team’s kicker ever since.

Since joining the Giants, Rosas has made 62 of his 75 field goal tries. In 2018, he earned a trip to the Pro Bowl, making him just one of four kickers in Giants franchise history to secure the honors. There have been some bumps along the way, however, including four missed PATs last year.

After 48 straight games with the team, the Giants used a second-round tender to bring Rosas back for 2020. He’s currently set to earn $3.26MM this season, but if he stays on the roster, there will surely be league discipline coming his way. He may be the only kicker on the roster for now, but expect that to change soon.

      what’s so funny? a guy committed a crime that could have killed someone and your laughing at it? what if you were the one who was hit? still laughing?

          Lowest form of internet beings are ones who correct spelling and grammar …it offers nothing to the discussion. It’s just a way for the writer to feel important in his or her otherwise dull and unfulfilling life

          • Hawktattoo

            But think of the joy he is getting being able to yell up from the basement “ mom I found one…yeah!!!”

            • robluca21

              Most of the time it’s an autocorrect issue or just a matter of typing too fast. No lesson learned.

      • earmbrister

        I’ll third that emotion. He’s lucky he didn’t kill someone, or himself.

        I don’t see him getting $3 MM/year going forward; real knucklehead move.

  1. HubcapDiamondStarHalo

    He obviously deserves and needs to get due process. That said, if it IS found that he was intoxicated, driving 100 mph, and left the scene of an accident, I hope he gets the same severity of punishment that a non-athlete would receive.

    What’s wrong with these Giants players recently. Normally those type of players are on the Cowboys

    • earmbrister

      Nice deflection attempt.

      We’ve discussed this before. The Giants have had more arrests than the Cowboys, particularly in recent years. It’s an easy Google search.

  3. burrow_is_a_bust

    Surprising it’s not a black usually it’s their type of crap to do

    • forwhomjoshbelltolls

      I don’t know if you ever answered the last time, so I’ll ask again…

      If someone called you a racist, would you respond with…

      A) “How dare you!”
      or
      B) “You got that right!”

      • burrow_is_a_bust

        I wld respond I like ppl tht want to succeed and make efforts to succeed and make change so I do like black ppl tht fit tht but if ur in the hood ruining the great United States of America’s yes I do hate u and it’s mostly blacks tht do

        • burrow_is_a_bust

          So I just want working people get the crime rate down get some fathers and build up the black community but until then a big percentage just live like animals so I will hate them until it improves hope I answered ur question and don’t respond oh ur just a racist answer up Wht I said

          • forwhomjoshbelltolls

            I’m not here to label you, I’m asking what you would label yourself and whether you accept or reject the label of racist.

            I get you have a bunch of asterisks, but bottom line…would you describe yourself as racist or not?

            • Banesays

              JB don’t bother. Burrows is a bust is worse than a racist. He’s the type of scum who believes that Hitler was a hero. He can’t even form complete sentences. Don’t waste your time.

              • forwhomjoshbelltolls

                Bane, I find value in turning the rocks over to let in some sunlight.

            • burrow_is_a_bust

              Nope not a racist and anyone tht does think I am pls explain clearly why?

              • burrow_is_a_bust

                No hitler killed out 6 million Jews for no good reason they didn’t have hoods where there are drugs and violent crimes we all know Jews are the most successful ppl tht is y there is so much anti semitisim it’s called JEALOUSY!!! So hitler had no right to do tht.

            • dynasty in boston

              How about you, Joan Bell? Racist? You’re certainly the most judgmental DB on these threads, no question

    • Drinking and driving is a white man’s crime. Not exclusively of course, but very common in the past.

      “No one can tell me I can’t drive.”

      Your chances of getting shot for drinking and driving go way up though if you’re black.

    • seth3120

      Time for Burrow to go MLBTR. He can create another account I realize that but this isn’t the first comment from him but it’s as blatant as it gets.

  4. yankeefan363

    Wow bro white people ruin this great country also. Grow up bro. ALL LIVES MATTER!!! not white lower not black lives matter f@ck all that we are all equal and I’ll say again ALL LIVES MATTER

  5. rusty.coqbern

    What’s this world coming to? Now Kickers are out of control? Hahaha

    • harden-westbrook-mvps

      Good question. What does it say about a team when the kicker gets arrested?

    • Sponge

      I had this vision of Peyton Manning talking about liquored up kickers. Funny!!

  6. JoeBrady

    Part of me feels like he needs a year in jail. Part of me feels like ‘there but for the grace of God’.

    Glad I’m not a kid anymore. I cannot imagine how stupid I’d have been at age 25, with $3M+ in earnings.

  7. impapad17

    I’m no doctor, but there is NO way he had a blood alcohol level of 0.8%. That’s about double the amount that virtually everyone would die from. Death may occur at .37% or higher. BACs of .45% and higher are fatal to nearly all individuals.
