Seahawks QB Portis arrested on suspicion of DUI

Seahawks quarterback Josh Portis was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on May 5, and will be arraigned in King County District Court in Redmond on May 28.

According to the Washington State Patrol arrest report, Portis was pulled over for driving 80 MPH on eastbound I-90 on the night of May 5. According to the report, the officer “smelled a strong odor of intoxicants” coming from the vehicle, and that Portis said he had not been drinking. Portis declined to take a breath test, and was arrested and was arrested and transported to WSP headquarters in Bellevue. There, Portis consented to a breath test, and registered readings of .092 and .078.

Portis, who spent the 2011 season on Seattle’s 53-man roster, spent most of last season on the practice squad before being released in November. He was re-signed this offseason to compete for Seattle’s vacant backup QB job. Portis was present for Seattle’s OTA Monday.
