damaged black Lamborghini was found on the north side of Chicago
early today. According to the police, the Lamborghini was
registered to Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs and it was
abandoned after hitting a light pole on I-94. Lance Briggs
contacted the police on Monday to discuss the whereabouts of his
luxury sports car, the police said, and arrangements made for a
meeting to discuss the accident.

780, the Lamborghini was in a photo shoot on Sunday and an auto
shop was supposed to put a #55 image on the vehicle. At this
time the police does not know if Briggs was behind the wheel or
in the car at the time of the accident. Chicago Bears spokesman
Scott Hagel said Briggs was not injured, but declined to say if
Lance Briggs was in the Lamborghini when it crashed or provide

face misdemeanor charges for improper lane usage and leaving the
scene of the accident.

with the Bears about his contract, threatening to sit out 10
games, after the Bears placed the franchise tag on him. Later he
accepted the one year $7.2 million contract in exchange for a
