« on: October 18, 2010, 11:34:42 AM »


Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, Calif., on Monday, just hours after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, KGTV reported.

Seau, 41, was reportedly released from a San Diego detention facility a little more than an hour after being arrested at approximately 2:00 a.m. PT. According to KGTV, the incident involved his live-in girlfriend.

After being released from custody, Seau then drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, according to law enforcement. Seau was pulled from the vehicle by law enforcement officials suffering only bruises and cuts and was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.

It was unclear what caused the former NFL star to drive off the cliff.

The 12-time Pro Bowl selection left football in January for the second time in a career that spanned 20 years and three NFL franchises.

Seau, the fifth overall pick in the 1990 NFL draft, spent 13 seasons with the San Diego Chargers, building a reputation as one of the most feared linebackers in the game.

Seauís play with the Chargers earned him a roster spot on the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team.

The former University of Southern California standout announced in January that he had played his final game, but has not yet officially retired from the NFL.
