LeRoy Hill Arrested For Domestic Violence


In what seems to be a yearly tradition, Seattle Seahawks LB LeRoy Hill has been arrested, this time for domestic violence.

According to Tim Booth via twitter, a press release from the Issaquah PD says Leroy Hill will be booked into King County Jail for unlawful imprisonment and 3rd degree assault. No other details are known at this time.

Hill is 31 years old, and this is the 4th time he’s been arrested since joining the Seahawks. It is time for the Seahawks to move on. It’s not like Hill’s on-field performance has been great either. He’s been demoted out of the nickel defense already, and was splitting time With Malcolm Smith.

Hill is a free agent, and it is now unlikely that the Seahawks will look to re-sign him.

A year ago, and back in 2009, Hill was arrested for Marijuana possession. The 2012 chargers were eventually dropped. In 2010, just days after reaching a plea deal for his 2009 arrest, Hill was arrested on domestic violence charges. He was able to avoid legal trouble in 2010 by entering an anti-violence program.

In light of recent event, this picture seems appropriate:

    Time to move on! Nothing worse than a woman beater.

      Especially a repeat offender.

    He’s really the only Seahawk that can’t seem to keep straight off the field. I take pride in not having a team of convicts. Won’t be sad to see him go. Especially since I still can’t get the image of him getting steamrolled in Miami out of my head.

    It’s a shame a guy in his position doesn’t understand what he’s losing. There’s really no excuse for his alleged behavior, and it’s not like he hasn’t had a chance to straighten himself out.

      4th arrest in 5 years. I agree he’s had plenty of “2nd chances” time to move on.
