Seahawks quarterback arrested for suspicion of DUI

According to The Seattle Times, Seahawks back up quarterback Josh Portis was arrested for suspicion of DUI back on May 5th and will be arraigned on May 28th.

Portis was pulled over at 9:26 p.m. on May 5 after he was observed driving 80 miles an hour in a 60-mile-an-hour zone exiting the Mount Baker Tunnel on eastbound I-90 in a 2008 Range Rover.


A report from the Washington State Patrol says the officer noticed “a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle” and that the driver “had watery bloodshoot eyes.”


Portis later submitted to two blood tests and registered blood alcohol concentration readings of .092 and .078. The legal limit in the state of Washington is .080. He was charged with a gross misdemeanor.

I can only imagine this will hurt Portis’ chances of making the Seahawks final roster.  I’m sure there’s a chance he gets released before training camp.
