Leroy Hill arrested for assault? That is what the Associated Press reported today. According to police Leroy hill was arrested after he allegedly "assaulted his girlfriend and kept her in his home against her will."
The Issaquah Police Department reports Hill was arrested for "unlawful imprisonment-domestic violence and third-degree assault-domestic violence." Both of the charges Hill faces are felonies in the state of Washington. Sources say this is the fourth time Hill, 30, has been arrested and the second time he has been accused of domestic violence.
A 26-year-old woman says Hill assaulted her several times, then kept her in his home against her will. Hill allegedly blocked a doorway and took the woman's cellphone. She says she was able to escape when Hill went to the restroom.
Leroy Hill was arrested less than a year ago in Atlanta for possession of marijuana, a charge that was later dropped, and in 2010 hill was charged with fourth-degree assault-domestic violence. He did not go to trial for the charge since he agreed to "a stipulated order of continuance that required him to avoid legal troubles for 18 months and complete a one-year, state-certified domestic violence treatment program."
A spokesperson for the Seattle Seahawks says the team is aware of the situation. The Seahawks signed Hill to an one-year contract last year. He is scheduled to becomes a free agent this offseason.
