49er, former Gamecock Culliver jailed on suspicion of hit and run

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Police say San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has been arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run and reckless driving after he drove a car into a bicyclist and fled.

San Jose police spokesman Albert Morales said Culliver was driving a white Ford Mustang when he hit the cyclist Friday morning near downtown San Jose. The bicyclist wasn't seriously hurt.

Morales says a witness followed the 25-year-old Culliver, who also drove into the car of the witness. Morales says that vehicle blocked the suspect's car until police arrived.

Morales said he didn't know the name of Culliver's attorney.

San Francisco 49ers spokesman Bob Lange said the organization would remain in contact with Culliver and authorities as investigators gathered the facts.
