DUI case against Seahawks running back Spencer Ware is dismissed

A DUI case against Seahawks running back Spencer Ware, stemming from an arrest on Jan. 12, has been dismissed.

Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the King County prosecutor’s office, said today that the case was dismissed on Friday after a judge ruled that the officer lacked reasonable suspicion of DUI at the time he initiated the traffic stop. The judge suppressed all of the evidence gathered thereafter, including the BAC test, and dismissed the case.

As detailed in this story, Ware was arrested in the early morning on the day after the Seahawks beat New Orleans in the playoffs.

Ware was taken in the sixth round of the 2013 draft out of LSU and played in the first two games of the season before suffering an ankle injury that sidelined him for the rest of the year.

As the Seahawks begin training camp Friday, Ware will compete for a spot on the roster as a fullback who can also play some tailback.
