More details on Seferian-Jenkins incident

The full police report on the Saturday night incident involving UW tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins became available this morning.

The report states an officer “came across a traffic collision” at 22 Ave. NE and Ravenna Ave. NE at 11:29 p.m. where the driver was found with a bloody nose. The injury, the police report states, “was consistent with hitting his face on the windshield of the crashed vehicle.”

The car was found in an open catch basin at the southern end of Ravenna City Park after leaving the roadway and driving over a small planted tree and the sidewalk. There was apparently no other car involved. The vehicle was found  to have “a star-shaped fracture to the windshield on the driver’s side.” The driver was found to have “a bloody nose and what appeared to be dried blood on his face and shirt.”

The witness reported the vehicle was driving “at high speed” and the driver was found standing outside the vehicle. The report stated the driver had the “strong odor of an an alcoholic beverage, thick-tongued speech and watery, blood-shot eyes.” The report notes the driver was identified as a University of Washington student by a UW police officer who stopped by.

The driver initially objected to medical treatment, the report states, but eventually was placed  on a backboard and in a neck collar and transported to Harborview Medical Center. He was declared “under arrest” for suspicion of driving under the influence prior to his transport to Harborview.

At the hospital, the driver initially asked to speak with a lawyer, eventually speaking with an on-call public defender. The driver then refused to submit to a blood draw again  asking to speak to an attorney. He was told he had already spoken to one, and a search warrant for the blood draw was then applied for and granted, and the blood draw was executed at 3:34 a.m. The driver was then released into hospital care and later released from Harborview.

The name of the suspect is blacked out in the police report since he was not booked into jail, instead cited and released.

But two sources confirmed to the Times that Seferian-Jenkins was the suspect, and UW also released a statement confirming Seferian-Jenkins’ involvement in an incident Saturday night.
