Seattle Seahawks linebacker LeRoy Hill was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend. Police were called to his home where they saw his girlfriend with marks and injuries that indicated that an assault had taken place. She told police that Hill caused the injuries.
So, he was arrested and booked on fourth-degree assault charges.
John Schneider released a statement, “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. We will wait to receive all the facts before commenting further.”

This all happened days after Hill reached a plea deal on a marijuana charge in Georgia. So, clearly Hill is on the right path to success.
The good news for the Seahawks is that Hill has proven that he can be physical. With 37 solo tackles and only one sack in 2009, we are sure that his ability to get after someone violently was in doubt.
