Dareus headed to trial for alleged car-racing incident

Marcell Dareus may have made the Pro Bowl for the second straight year, but he also has a date in Hamburg Town Court during next season's offseason workouts.

Dareus appeared in court in Western New York Tuesday for a scheduled hearing, according to the AP, but it will be his appearance May 19 when he'll stand trial for his participation in an alleged street racing incident in May of 2014.

Dareus' attorney Michael Caffery reportedly shot down a plea deal made by the prosecution in the case, a deal that would have allowed all charges to be dropped if the defensive tackle plead guilty to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge.
