Police say Kevin Conroy, of Millis, is charged with drug possession, negligent operation and possession of an open alcohol container.

Police say Langi was stopped at a traffic light in Foxborough on Oct. 13 when Conroy's Jeep, going 50 mph, rear-ended him. The force pinned Langi's car between the Jeep and the car in front of him.

Conroy had medications he said had been prescribed to him. He passed a Breathalyzer. He was not arrested, but will be summoned to court. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Langi, an undrafted free agent from Brigham Young, and his wife were hospitalized for several days.
