We mentioned the other night that Seahawks guard John Moffitt missed OTA time to appear in court.
But Moffitt, like several other Seahawks, has apparently reached repeat offender status with his urine.
He’s been suspended once for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances, but the current trouble stems from providing an unauthorized sample.
According to a police report obtained by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Moffitt had been banned from the Bellevue Square mall and other properties owned by the same company for a year starting January 2012. But he returned to the mall in June, when he was spotted by security allegedly urinating near a parked car outside a bar. That’s when security called police (there’s clearly not enough crime there), who chased him before he ran into a building.
A week later, the police showed photos of Moffitt to the security guard (seriously, this is what they investigate?), who identified him as the urinator in question.
At least it wasn’t a Whizzinator.
Last August, Moffitt was also escorted out restaurant in another mall which is owned by the same company which banned him.
“Once outside, two pairs of handcuffs were placed on Moffitt due to his large size and a recent shoulder injury,” the police report states. “Both sets of handcuffs were checked for tightness, and all were double locked.”
I think I speak for everyone here when I say we’re relieved the law enforcement community in the Pacific Northwest has such a firm grip on the situation.
