With a domestic violence arrest coming only days into a 12-month probation term for pleading guilty to marijuana possession, the Seattle Seahawks have told linebacker Leroy Hill not to show up for a voluntary minicamp that opened Tuesday.
Per the Associated Press, coach Pete Carroll said after practice that Hill was told it would be “best for him to take care of some things” instead.
Hill’s live-in girlfriend alleged that he pulled her down the steps by her ponytail on Saturday night.
A suspension of any length would be costly for Hill. Due to earn a base salary of $6 million, he’d lose $352,000 per week.
