    Seattle's Tatupu reportedly arrested for DUI

    Report: Tatupu arrested for DUI
    May 13, 2008 3:24 PM
    Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

    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.

    Who cares what kind of car he drives?

    But this is bad news for the Hawks. He's such a good player, it'll be difficult for them if they lose him for a few games.

    I don't understand why they don't hire drivers to drive them around when they are out drinking. I would do that if I was loaded with cash. Money is no object to them and image is everything.

    I wonder if all the "Crucify Little" voices, many of which were blaring from the American Northwest, are going to ring the same bells this time?
