We just reported that Seau was arrested early this morning on suspicion of Domestic Violence.
After being released, Seau drove his SUV off a cliff. I know it is unbelievable.
If you look at the picture above it wasn’t a “small cliff” and he is very lucky to be alive.
TMZ has the details:
Junior Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA this morning — and survived — this according to law enforcement.
We’re told Seau sustained injuries in the wreck — cops are on scene.
Seau has been transported to a local hospital.
I don’t know what to make out of this. Was attempted suicide or if just a bad accident? Whatever the case, I hope Seau gets the help he obviously needs.
The accident occurred just hours after he was released from jail.
Here are a few more details:
KGTV in San Diego reports of Seau’s arrest and his current condition:
Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau has been arrested on a charge of felony spousal assault with injury, according to Oceanside police.
Seau was arrested around midnight Sunday for the incident, which allegedly occurred against his live-in girlfriend.
After he was released from custody, Seau drove his Cadillac Escalade off a cliff in Carlsbad, Carlsbad police told 10News.
Additionally, a witness called 10News around 9:00 a.m. to report that she saw Seau drive a car off a cliff directly in front of her near Carlsbad Boulevard and Solamar Drive.
Seau was pulled out of the vehicle with only cuts and bruises and taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, police said.
From this account, it looks like Seau drove his SUV off the cliff on purpose. No word on what injuries his live in girlfriend suffered.
TMZ reports that Seau told police that he wasn’t trying to commit suicide when he drove his Cadillac Escalade off a cliff in Carlsbad, California. He says he nodded off while driving.
