Backup Seahawks tackle arrested for domestic violence


A backup offensive tackle with the Seahawks has been jailed for suspicion of domestic violence. Chad Wheeler remained in the King County Jail Monday night after he was arrested Saturday morning. According to ESPN’s Brady Henderson, Wheeler is accused of assaulting a woman in an apartment in Kent.

The police report says Wheeler is accused of throwing a woman on a bed, strangling her before she lost consciousness and later picking a lock on a door to a bathroom, where the woman had fled to call 9-1-1 after she regained consciousness.

The Seahawks said in a statement obtained by ESPN, “we are aware of the situation and still gathering information.”

Wheeler appeared in five games with Seattle this season. He is a restricted free agent.
