Junior Seau arrested for domestic violence, then drives off a cliff! That’s what the world of sports woke up to this morning. Now everyone is dying to know about his girlfriend, and exactly what happened Sunday night. Get the details here, and see related photos and video below.
A man usually known for his incredible vision on the field apparently didn’t see the edge of a cliff in time to slam on the brakes. The 12 time Pro Bowler topped off a really bad Sunday with a serious car accident that landed him in the hospital—and boy did it make for some great headlines.
Junior Seau, arrested for suspicion of domestic violence, posted bail sometime early Monday morning. After only a matter of hours went by, he then reportedly drove his Cadillac SUV off of a cliff in Carlsbad, CA.
The NFL great told police that he fell asleep at the wheel, which caused him to lose control of the vehicle. Authorities are apparently still looking into the accident, which earned Seau a trip to a nearby emergency room.
Immediately after the news hit, people began to speculate that he may have attempted suicide after the troubling turn of events. TMZ reports that he insists it was nothing more than a case of dozing off while driving.
So far the name of his 25-year-old girlfriend hasn’t been released. She told police that he assaulted her after the two argued late Sunday night. When authorities arrived on the scene, she told them that her injuries were too minor to need treatment.
As of Monday morning around lunchtime, Seau was still in the hospital. He is expected to be okay. Hopefully we get some sort of statement from the defensive genius before people begin to weave their own version of things.
