Junior Seau, one of the most famous San Diego born athletes of all time, had quite the tumultuous week. First, he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, allegedly hitting his live-in girlfriend. Then, Seau drove off of a cliff near Oceanside, California. He went down about 100 feet off of said cliff, yet walked away with only cuts and bruises.
Seau, who was released from jail earlier in the day, told authorities that he fell asleep at the wheel, and it was not a suicide attempt. Police also said drugs and alcohol were non-factors.
Conveniently, the District Attorney today, decided not to press charges on Seau, who will walk away with a slap on the wrist. Seau was also accused of violence of women in 2007, when he allegedly threw glasses of wine at two women, and yelled vulgar profanity at the women.
I as a lifelong Charger fan, was never a big fan of Seau, I was thought the guy has a big-time fraud. A few years ago, I had a run-in with him in my place of employment. His Mother came in to shop, and I would not allow her to use his credit card. He came back, swore at me, and paid for the items. Junior Seau is a first-class asshole. Also, if you are ever in San Diego, stay away from Seau's, his shitty excuse of a restaurant. There is a Hooters down the street, go there.
Personally, I am speculating that it was a suicide attempt. Dude knew his pristine reputation was ruined, since he smacked around his lady, and decided he would end it. If drugs weren't involved, could be simply falling asleep at the wheel? Personally, I don't really buy it. The guy is a retired football player, who is no longer a relevant person in society. Gotta be a blow to this man's massive ego.
Junior Seau, former Pro Bowl linebacker, and current abuser. Congratulations Junior, you never won a Super Bowl, but you are the latest "Douchebag of the Week!"
