Bad news for former Seattle Seahawk running back Spencer Ware… not only was he released by the Seahawks on Saturday but he also got popped with a DUI charge on Tuesday. Apparently, Ware was arrested for allegedly drunk driving on Tuesday morning in Maple Valley and was booked into the Kent jail at 3:21am.
This is Spencer Ware’s second DUI within this year, his first DUI was on January 9th when he was on the Seahawks injured reserve list. The 22-year-old was lucky in July, his DUI case was dismissed after a ruling that the arresting officer did not have a lawful basis to initiate the traffic stop. The judge also suppressed all evidence gathered after the traffic stop, which included incriminating evidence such as the BAC test and DUI field sobriety test results.
Although Ware’s January DUI was dismissed, it will likely be used against him during the resolution of his new DUI charge. Ware’s next court date is his arraignment set for September 8th in the Maple Valley Municipal Court.
Currently Spencer Ware is a free agent and has yet to be picked up by an NFL team.
On a side note, downtown Seattle is buzzing with fanatical Seahawk fans, regular season opening game day, Seahawks vs. the Green Bay Packers, go Hawks!
