Dareus Troubles Continue: The Buffalo News is reporting that Marcell Dareus is in trouble with the law again. They are reporting he was chared with three misdemeanors and 4 traffic violations for drag racing and property damage in Hamburg last week. He also reportedly left the scene of the damage. The most serious charge according to the paper is reckless endangerment, a class A misdemeanor that is punishable with up to a year in jail if convicted. This comes a month after he was arrested in Alabama for having drug paraphernalia and synethic marijuana possession. This latest transgression will ceratainly upset the front office and may make his chances at a league suspension increase.
