Former Seahawk running back Spencer Ware was arrested on suspicion of DUI this morning in Maple Valley.
Court records show he was booked into jail in Kent at 3:21 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The case has been referred to the Maple Valley prosecutor’s office.
It is the second DUI arrest in nine months for Ware as he was also cited on Jan. 12. However, that case was dismissed in July 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.
Ware, a sixth-round pick in 2013 out of LSU, played in two games for the Seahawks last season before suffering an ankle injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. He was eventually placed on Injured Reserve.
Ware was released by the Seahawks on Saturday when the team cut its roster from 75 to the regular season maximum of 53. He has yet to be picked up by another team.
Ware rushed for 51 yards on 15 carries in the preseason for the Seahawks.
