Seahawks fan charged with assault after Mill Creek incident

His day goes from bad to worse: After being kicked out of the stadium, he was arrested at home.

EVERETT — A Mill Creek man who was kicked out of a Seattle Seahawks game for boorish behavior is now facing a felony charge.

He’s accused of choking a former girlfriend when she attempted later to stop him from burning Seahawks memorabilia in the living room of the apartment they’d shared.

The incident occurred Dec. 17, the day Seattle took a 42-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Multiple 911 calls that afternoon summoned police to a Mill Creek apartment complex, deputy prosecutor Rachel L. Cormier Anderson said in Snohomish County Superior Court papers filed last week. A shirtless man was reported to be attacking a woman wearing a Seahawks jersey in the parking lot.

Witnesses directed police to an apartment, and knocking on the door produced no results. Police spotted a shirtless man, 26, trying to hide in the bushes nearby. They noted dried blood on his hands and booze on his breath. He was detained and declined to talk with officers.

The woman in the Seahawks jersey approached police, along with several witnesses. She was shaking and crying.

She said the man was her former boyfriend, and they still shared the apartment as roommates.

“She reported that they had been at the Seahawks game together, but the defendant was kicked out of the stadium because of his drinking and behavior,” the prosecutor wrote. “On the way home, the defendant became more and more agitated and when they arrived at their shared apartment, he indicated he was going to burn all of his Seahawks memorabilia in the living room of the apartment.”

The woman said she asked him to stop, but was attacked and choked nearly unconscious before she was able to get out of the apartment. The violence continued in the parking lot until witnesses yelled and the man fled. The man was arrested and booked into jail. He’s now charged with domestic violence second-degree assault.
