A year after he was pulled over by the Police on Interstate 5, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock has been charged with drunken driving according to King County court documents.
Brock will be arraigned in King County District Court on Dec. 21.
The charges, filed late Tuesday, come more than a year after Brock’s November 2010 arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.
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.
“I am new here, and I was following my navigation system,” the trooper said Brock told him.
Brock said he had had “a couple” of drinks but would not submit to a field sobriety test.
According to the police report, Brock was shocked that the arresting officer actually intended to enforce Washington’s drunk driving laws.
The officer said he would be processed like everyone else. Brock was not booked into jail, but taken home.
Brock did not immediately inform the team of his arrest before playing at Arizona the next day, Nov. 14.
