Leroy Hill arrested

Just found this on the AP:

ATLANTA, Ga. — Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill has been arrested on charges of misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Sgt. Dwayne Taylor of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the 26-year-old Hill was arrested about 4 a.m. Saturday in the suburban Atlanta county. Taylor said Hill had apparently fallen asleep behind the wheel at a major intersection.

Taylor said officers found less than one ounce of marijuana in the vehicle. A court date has not yet been set. Hill was released after posting a $1,500 bond. Officials did not know if he has an attorney.

Hill made 84 tackles in 12 games, but missed the final four games of the season with a pinched nerve in his neck. The four-year veteran is scheduled to become a free agent next month.

Great way to start the off-season Hill. Especially since you'll be a free agent next month. Yeah, the Hawks have made it clear in the past they don't like people who mess around on their team. Ken Hamlin and Jerramy Stevens ring a bell?
