A former NFL player has been arrested after allegedly leaving the scene of a crash, abandoning his vehicle, and leaving his passenger at a hospital where she was treated for head and face injuries. 

According to authorities, Adam Hartford Seward was released from police custody on the morning of March 16th following his arrest on a felony failure to stop at the scene of an accident charge along with other traffic violations.

A judge then ordered Seward not to drive, pending his next court appearance.

38-year-old Seward played linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers from 2005 to 2008. He played high school football in Las Vegas and attended UNLV where he played on the school’s football team.

According to police, witnesses report seeing a Jeep collide with a light pole at an intersection late on the evening of March 15th. 

An officer then reported finding the vehicle unoccupied and heavily damaged with blood in the passenger area. The officer then followed a blood trail to an apartment complex where he found Seward. Seward then told authorities that the Jeep was his.

According to the report, Seward met the woman earlier that night and acknowledged driving her to the hospital in another car that he owns.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Seward’s next court date is May 12
