What a week!
The Raheem Brock Punk by Pete Carroll was funny! This is not.
The Dreaded DUI
Seattle Seahawks DE Raheem Brock unable to make any type of news on the field this year on Sunday’s is going to be making a whole heck of a lot of news off it now with this little nugget.
Brock has been charged with (DUI) drunken driving, more than a year after he was pulled over and accused of driving a estimated 85 or 90 mph on the I-5.
King County prosecutor’s office has officially charged the 33-year-old in district court.
He is now due to be arraigned Dec. 21.
A state trooper’s report says Brock was stopped by a University of Washington police officer early on Nov. 13, 2010, and that a breath test showed his blood-alcohol content to be nearly twice the legal limit.
According to King 5, Brock’s attorney, Jon Scott Fox, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
This is just great. Not only are we not getting any production out of him on the field but now we quite possibly could see him dealing with the dreaded off-the-field issues now too. FABULOUS.
Trouble just seems to find this guy too. Last week he was convicted in Philadelphia for theft and sentenced to six months of probation, for failing to pay a restaurant bill. DOH. (Pulling an Iverson).
You heard me correctly. As first reported by the Philly post Raheem Brock who I think can afford to pay a tab with his $4.7 million per season, went to court because he wouldn’t pay a restaurant $27.
Time for him to fly
I’ve got this to say, and I’ll say it quickly. Time to go Tim Ruskell on this guy. “I don’t like his character”.
It’s time for Raheem Brock to be shown the door outta here.
Let’s get some more young kids on the field and see what they can do. Can it be any worse than Brock’s 2011/12 stats? Pep Levingston can’t do any worse can he? Is Michael McCrary available? (he’s only been out of football 8 years right?)
Solo Tackles: 12
That’s right folks. 12 Games. 12 Tackles. 1 Sack. That’s it. Nothing else. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
