Seattle radio station KJR-AM 950 is reporting today that Lofa Tatupu, the Seahawks' perennial Pro Bowl linebacker, has been arrested for drunken driving.

The Seahawks recently signed Tatupu to a long-term extension. Team president Tim Ruskell has taken a hard line against off-field incidents. Tatupu is the defensive leader of the Seahawks. This is the first off-field incident involving Tatupu that I can recall hearing about.

KJR has a copy of the police report showing Tatupu blew .155 percent and .158 percent in his breath tests. The legal limit in Washington state is .08 percent.

Tatupu is known as an unassuming hard worker, a leader who is vocal but not flamboyant. How unflamboyant is Tatupu? The police report says Tatupu, whose new deal is worth more than $40 million, was driving a 2006 Hyundai Accent, worth about $11,000 fully loaded with 30,000 miles, according to Kelley Blue Book.

Maybe the Hyundai was his "drunk driving" car...ya know, the one he took out when he knew there was a high probability he was gonna get smashed and he might back into another vehicle, scrape a guard rail, hop a median, etc.

Wouldn't wanna do any of that fun stuff in a Benz.

That premeditated drunk driving f*ck!!!

Trade him Seattle.. trade that worthless POS away....



















to the Chiefs please.

When he accumulates 3 more DUI's, they probably will.
