Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau was arrested for domestic violence in Oceanside, California, in the early morning hours Monday, hours before he drove his car off a cliff in nearby Carlsbad, authorities said.
The domestic violence incident began when Oceanside police were called to Seau's residence to investigate a report of an assault late Sunday night, police said. The alleged victim is Seau's 25-year-old live-in girlfriend, who had minor injuries that didn't require medical treatment.
The girlfriend told police that Seau assaulted her during a verbal argument, authorities said. Seau wasn't at the residence when the police arrived, but he later agreed to return home after he called his girlfriend and spoke to officers on the scene, police said.
Shortly after midnight, Seau drove back home. He was arrested at 12:20 a.m. Monday and charged with spousal assault with injury, police said. He was released on bail, police said.
Some time later Monday morning, Seau drove his white Cadillac SUV off a cliff and landed on the beach at Carlsbad, police said.
He was taken to nearby Scripps La Jolla Hospital for treatment, authorities said.
Law officers are investigating the cause of the accident, in which Seau was the vehicle's only occupant, police said. Carlsbad is 35 miles north of San Diego, California, where Seau played most of his career.
Drafted into the NFL in the first round in 1990 out of the University of Southern California, Seau debuted with the San Diego Chargers, establishing his Hall of Fame credentials as a starring linebacker and Pro Bowl staple.
He left San Diego prior to the 2003 season to join the Miami Dolphins and spent parts of the last four seasons with the New England Patriots before retiring last January. Seau amassed 1,526 tackles, 56.5 sacks and 18 interceptions in his 20-year career.
Off the gridiron, Seau was the star of "Sports Jobs with Junior Seau," a reality show on the Versus network that followed him as he took on various occupations, from baseball batboy to bullfighter to pro hockey equipment manager.
The Versus website portrays Seau, 41, as "taking on the coolest, dirtiest and most fascinating jobs in sports. NFL legend Junior Seau, will get beat up, worn down and well schooled."
The retired NFL star, who's divorced and the father of four children, is also head of a namesake San Diego-based nonprofit organization, which has donated nearly $4 million for services and scholarships to children and young adults.
He's also a restaurateur, with two establishments called Seau's in Southern California.
Born Tiana Baul Seau Jr. in San Diego, he was a Parade magazine football All-American out of Oceanside High School.

Stayed in the league too long. Too many hits to the head caused brain damage. Sad to see.

Seau had a great career but the sad thing about football players sometimes is they are used to violence and cant always seperate it from the field and real life.

Does anyone know the details of the assault yet. These issues are tough. Women generally get beat up by men and all, and that is wrong in almost all cases, but it is easy for a woman to claim it without it happening also. If I was alone with a woman and she claimed I wronged her physically I would likely end up in handcuffs. It's not an excuse or an apology for anyone right now, just something I wonder about. Think Jenna Jameson or Tila Tequila.

Roids cause people to go crazy sometimes.

No surprise here.

Completely agree. Countless studies have shown the effects of these hits over a long period of time. I'd put my money on hardcore depression caused by brain injuries.

Yeah, but usually roids are what cause the aggression/depression highs and lows with people...and the concussions might mess their head up a little bit as well.

Kinda reminds me of when my former favorite pro wrestler when I used to watch, named Chris Benoit killed his family and then himself.

They said roids were in his system...so he'd obviously been taking them...and then the painkillers and shit he was pry on from all the shit they put their bodies through just wasnt a good mix after all the years of it.
