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.

  1. I can overlook midnight doughnut filching (Tate), falling asleep at the wheel at 4am in an intersection (Hill), using banned drugs (Moffitt), or texting photos of your ding dong to certain reporters (Favre), but I draw the line at DUI. Innocent people get killed every day by drunk drivers. Just look at Leonard Little, who should have gone to jail but didn’t, probably because he was one of the untouchables as Brock was asking to be.

  2. i didn’t know brock played receiver.

    “According to the report, Brock was informed he would be processed just like anyone else.”

    So I guess everyone else is charged a year after the fact, too?

  4. Again just another spoke off the disciplinary wheel falling off…….

  5. bird_spit says:

    He only got charged because a reporter in Philly did some digging..

    This has nothing to do with the Seahawk’s disciplinary wheel. Brock had a reputation when he was playing in the east. Look at his sense of entitlement in his comment about the police not ‘taking care of their atheletes” here like they do back east. That says he was doing this when he played there, but he always got away with it.

    Don’t even try to put this one on your Carroll has no control campaign list.

    The NFLPA already takes care of you Brock. It’s called Safe Ride Solutions. Perhaps you should use it considering you already pay for it though your union dues.

    Pete and John discipline in a different way…They just get rid of players who are a pain and/or do not perform..They are not babysitters..They are professionals and expect their players to be..They don’t give fines or make them run..they just get rid of them..I personally like the way they are doing it.

  9. mocarob says:

    yeah that reporter from Philly called the WSP and King County court.
    Somebody had lost the paperwork. They had to re-file.

  10. nidhighe says:

    So why was a Philly reporter checking into arrests of Seahawks’ backup players in the first place?
