A Lamborgini Murcielago Roadster owned by Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs was found crashed and empty on I-94 in Chicago early this morning. Illinois State Police say it's not clear whether the all-star was driving at the time of the crash, and Briggs has not yet been charged with any crime. In photos of the accident, it looks like the Lambo might have tried to tackle an opposing team's light pole. We suspect the pole could be cited for holding.
Police say Briggs did, however, call them Monday morning to "discuss" the crash and will interview the football player sometime today. Police also have revealed that the car was not reported stolen.
The Chicago Tribune says Briggs' teammates were expressing support for their fellow Bear, even Lamborghini-owner Nathan Vasher. "I have no idea what happened with Lance," cornerback Nathan Vasher told the Tribune. "It's very unfortunate what happened."
Photos of the mangled Mucielago can been seen here and a video here.
