The Seattle Seahawks wasted little time after the recent report that offensive tackle Jarriel King was involved in a sexual assault back in his home state of South Carolina, releasing him from the team’s 80-man roster.
According to WCSC-TV in South Carolina, Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Jarriel King was arrested last month in North Charleston, S.C. for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman who was highly intoxicated.
According to the report, North Charleston police officers arrested King and another man on third degree criminal sexual conduct charges.
King and another man reportedly had forcible sex with a 25-year-old woman on Feb. 26 after returning from a nightclub.
The Seahawks claimed the South Carolina product off of waivers on Sept. 4, 2011 after he was released during final roster cut downs from the New York Giants.
King, 25, had some red flags coming out of college, but the Seahawks liked his potential and kept him on the active roster all season. But King was nursing an ankle injury most of the year and was active for only one game against St. Louis, seeing limited action on special teams and for a couple plays when Robert Gallery had to leave the game.
