Leroy Hill

LB Leroy Hill was arrested this weekend and charged with domestic violence and fourth-degree assault. The alleged incident occurred Saturday night at Hill's home in Issaquah between Hill and his girlfriend.

This is the second straight offseason Hill has been arrested. He just wrapped up last year's marijuana arrest in court April 1.

Hill was booked into jail that night and appeared in court Monday. He was released after pleading not guilty.

The linebacker is expected to be suspended one game for his marijuana possession conviction. It's unclear whether his latest two charges will add to the imminent suspension.

Seahawks GM John Schneider released a statement to the press today.

"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."
