More than a year after the initial arrest, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock has been charged with DUI in King County.
Brock will be arraigned in King County District Court on Dec. 21.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred just before 3 a.m. on Nov. 13 of last year. Brock was driving up to 90 miles per hour north on Interstate 5 after leaving a bar in the University District in Seattle when he was pulled over by the State Patrol and arrested on suspicion of DUI early Saturday morning, a day before the Seahawks’ game at Arizona.
According to a report by the Washington State Patrol, a preliminary breath test showed Brock’s blood-alcohol concentration to be .133. The legal limit is .08. Brock refused field sobriety tests and was taken to the UW Police Department, where two breath tests put his BAC at .115 and .111.
During the arrest, Brock asked the arresting officer, “You guys don’t take care of your athletes here?” When asked to clarify the statement, Brock responded, “Every time I have been stopped out east, Chicago, New Jersey and Philadelphia, the cops either followed me home or gave me a ride.”
According to the report, Brock was informed he would be processed just like anyone else.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll did not know about Brock’s incident before the Arizona game.
