Giants K Aldrick Rosas was arrested on Monday for a hit-and-run, the Giants confirmed after releasing an official statement on the matter Tuesday.
"We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Aldrick. We have no further comment at this time," the Giants said.
Rosas was driving a black Chevrolet SUV, failed to stop for a red light and collided with a Ford pick-up truck. Rosas then "attempted to flee the scene," according to California Highway Patrol, but his SUV "became disabled north of the collision scene."

Rosas then "exited the Chevrolet and fled the scene on foot." He had no shoes on.
The CHP and Chico PD went to the home of the registered owner of the Chevy, which was Rosas, but Rosas wasn't there. Then, they went back to the area of the collision to collect evidence when one of the cops "observed a male walking … that matched the suspect description." They "observed his hands, legs and bare feet were covered in blood."
Rosas identified himself and he was arrested. He was then taken to Enloe Medical Center for a "medical clearance" and then booked into Butte County Jail for misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving on a suspended license.
Rosas was estimated to be speeding "around 100 mph" when he failed to stop at a red light around 8:25 a.m.
The 25-year-old has been solid for the Giants over his three seasons with the team, collecting a Pro Bowl bid in 2018 after hitting 32 of his 33 field goal attempts. He is a career 62-of-75 in field goals with only four missed extra points in 39 attempts.
The Giants showed how much they liked Rosas when they dropped the second-round tender on him this offseason, which he ended up signing for $3.259 million.
