Spikes’ damaged abandoned car was found by state police over the weekend. The operator via the OnStar on-board navigation system reported hitting a deer.
Whoever had been driving it was no longer at the scene. An investigation indicates the Mercedes is registered to Brandon Spikes. No deer was located but another car was found down the road that was involved in a hit and run.
Patriots announce release of LB Brandon Spikes shortly after police begin review of potential hit and run. His reunion w/ NE very short
