The Massachusetts State Police didn’t buy the story about “hitting a deer” either.
Authorities there just announced that former Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes will face four charges after his recent automobile incident.
The MSP determined that Spikes “was speeding and driving negligently when he crashed his 2011 Maybach sedan into the back of a sport utility vehicle.”
He’s being charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, operating a motor vehicle negligently to endanger, speeding and failure to stay within marked lanes.
He has already been punished by the Patriots, who cut him shortly after his abandoned vehicle was found on the side of Route 495 near Foxborough, where cops said an Onstar attendant told them the driver of the car said he hit a deer.
But cops say they saw no trace of a deer strike, or Spikes.
The crash caused minor injuries to a couple and a 12-year-old boy, but they were treated and released from a nearby hospital.
