The Seattle Seahawks did not make it to the playoffs in 2011, but they have topped another prestigious (okay, not so prestigious) list. They finished in the Top 5 of NFL teams in a recent LockerSmash list of most player arrests since 2010.
With four player arrests since 2010, the Seahawks are in a five-way tie for fifth place among all NFL teams. The good news is that they are way in back of the first-place Tennessee Titans, who have a whopping nine instances of arrest, citation, or charges over that time period.
- RB Quinton Ganther was arrested on suspicion of DUI in July, 2010.
- DE Raheem Brock was arrested for an actual DUI in November of 2010.
- Brock was also arrested in June of 2011 for walking out on a $27 check.
- LB Leroy Hill was arrested in April, 2010 in a domestic assault case.
Hopefully, the Seahawks will be able to do better over the next couple of years. By which I mean, "stop getting arrested, you guys."
