Seferian-Jenkins Charged With Misdemeanor DUI

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.

WWE Champ Arrested for Marijuana DUI

WWE Champ Arrested for Marijuana DUI

Mississippi police had the ultimate smackdown on WWE champ Jack Swagger when they arrested him last night for DUI (driving under the influence) and possession of marijuana.

World Wrestling Entertainment star Jack Swagger, real name Jacob Hager, had just finished taping a TV episode of “SmackDown” when he was pulled over by Biloxi Mississippi police for speeding.  Law enforcement claimed they could tell Swagger was DUI on marijuana (not an alcohol related DUI) giving them probable cause to search Swagger’s 2013 Ford Taurus.  Police found marijuana in Swagger’s budget friendly ride which led to Swagger’s arrest.

“The All American American” wrestler was charged with misdemeanor counts of speeding, DUI, and possession of marijuana.  Swagger was later released on his own recognizance.

The WWE’s reaction to Swaggers legal charges seemed minimal as they released the statement, “Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions.”

However, Jack isn’t completely off the hook with the WWE, according to their Wellness Policy “Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal.”

With a successful growing career on the line, Swagger better hire a DUI defense attorney that can put a prosecutor in a good pile drive to get his case dismissed!
