Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill accused of domestic violence

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Linebacker Leroy Hill was arrested in Issaquah on Saturday night during a domestic-violence call. The news was reported by KING-5 television and confirmed by a press release from the Issaquah Police Department.

According to a release from the Issaquah Police Department, officers were summoned to Hill's home in Issaquah just before midnight. The release stated that officers noticed "obvious injuries" on Hill's girlfriend, who lives with him at the residence. It stated she alleged Hill caused those injuries.

Hill was arrested and booked into jail on investigation of domestic violence.

Hill was also arrested last year for misdemeanor marijuana possession, a charge he recently pleaded guilty to. He received a sentence of 12 months probation. Hill, 27, is already facing potential league discipline for that case.

Hill has played five seasons for Seattle since being chosen in the third round of the 2005 NFL draft.

As of Monday afternoon, Hill was no longer being held in custody at the Issaquah jail.

The Seahawks released a statement from general manager John Schneider regarding the arrest.

Update at 5:43 p.m.: "While we are still in the process of gathering information, we are aware of the situation involving Leroy Hill and take these issues very seriously," Schneider said. "We will wait to receive all the facts before commenting further."
