Seferian-Jenkins Charged With Misdemeanor DUI

An update on UW’s football phenom Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ drunk driving accident that occurred on March 6; the Seattle City of Attorney’s Office has formally charged Seferian-Jenkins with a misdemeanor DUI after receiving his blood alcohol test results of .18, over twice the legal DUI limit of .08.

Immediately after the DUI accident, coach Steve Sarkisian placed the husky tight end on “indefinite” suspension, not allowing Seferian-Jenkins to participate in football practices or have contact with teammates.  In accordance with the University of Washington’s official student-athelete code of conduct,

When a student-athlete has been arrested or charged with a violation of criminal law, the student-athlete will be placed on administrative suspension from all team activities pending further investigation. If the alleged criminal activity would constitute a misdemeanor offense, the head coach may lift the administrative suspension after obtaining the approval of the sport administrator. If the alleged criminal activity would constitute a felony, the administrative suspension may be lifted only upon authorization of the Director of Athletics.’’

coach Sarkisian will be able to lift the suspension when he deems appropriate since Seferian-Jenkins has been charged with a misdemeanor DUI and not any felony charges.  Sarkisian stated in a recent interview, “He has already begun to take the necessary steps to return at the appropriate time.”

Seferian-Jenkins, possibly the nations best college tight end, will likely be back on the football field sooner rather than later.

Seattle Football Phenom Seferian-Jenkins Charged with DUI

Upsetting news for University of Washington football fans as they learn star player Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended due to a DUI investigation over the weekend.  As of now the suspension restricts the Husky tight end from practices, games, and any contact with teammates until the DUI investigation is complete.  Once charges have been filed against Seferian-Jenkins the suspension will be re-evaluated.

UW football coach Steve Sarkisian released statements concerning the DUI arrest, “He will be disciplined internally in accordance with team and departmental policies.  We will continue to support Austin throughout this process, while holding  him accountable and responsible for his actions.”

Saturday night around 11:30 PM, Seattle police found Seferian-Jenkins’ car crashed in a ditch along Ravenna Boulevard, not far from UW’s sororities and fraternities, popular party location for college students.   Austin smelled of alcohol and suffered bloody injuries to his face (consistent with injuries acquired when hitting your head into a car windshield) giving Seattle police reason to arrest him with DUI and take him to the hospital for a blood test.  It is common practice for police in Washington State to take a person involved in a car accident that is under suspicion for DUI to the hospital for blood analysis to get an accurate BAC (blood alcohol content) reading.

Fellow Dawg football fans and all others, continue to follow my blog for updates on charges filed against Seferian-Jenkins.

Harsh DUI Penalty – Terrell Williams

Senior Arkansas Razorback lineman, Terrell Williams, is already paying a harsh consequence for a DUI charge he received early Sunday morning.  Razorback coach, John L. Smith, announced Williams had been suspended indefinitely from college football because of the DUI arrest and charge, without opportunity to prove his innocence.  HARSH!  Perhaps in the world of college athletics, you are guilty until proven innocent!

DUI consequences will continue for Terrell if he is found guilty, possible jail time, losing his license, and fines.  A career in the NFL may be lost if it was possible prior to the DUI, Williams did have seven tackles in Saturday nights game against Tulsa.  DUI’s are unpredictable creatures and can terribly affect one’s life, such as Terrell Williams story of indefinite suspension.
