Seattle radio station KJR-AM 950 is reporting that Seahawks MLB Lofa Tatupu has been arrested for drunken driving.

KJR apparently has a copy of the police report which shows that Tatupu blew a .155 and a .158 percent in his breath tests, nearly twice the legal limit. Tatupu just signed a six-year extension worth $42 million in March, and this is his first major off-field incident since entering the league in 2005. He shouldn't face any disciplinary actions.

it's a shame he didn't have the maturity to be responsible and use a cab when he knew he was going to be drinking. Even if he didn't plan on drinking he still has more than enough money to get a cab ride home and a ride back to get his car. I hold no sympothy for drunk drivers he should get his license pulled for a year and walk.

Seahawks GM Tim Ruskell says he's confident MLB Lofa Tatupu will "make amends" following his DUI arrest.

"He will make this right," Ruskell said. "I know he will turn this into a positive thing. I truly buy into what he said. Ruskell recently gave Tatupu a brand new $42 million contract. Tatupu likely isn't in danger of a suspension.

I agree with about everything said in here. I think he will make amends with management, his teammates and ultimately the fans. However I too hold no sympathy for Drunk Drivers. Lofa is probably my favorite player, but I dont care who it is... DUI's should demand losing your license for a year.

If he makes amends for it then i think it will be ok. I have never been drunk but i imagine it is easier to say as a sober person it is sensible to get a cab then when you are drunk.

Lofa Tatupu pleaded guilty to a charge of driving under the influence Monday.

Tatupu initially pled not guilty, but changed his plea. He was sentenced to one day in jail and fined $1,255. If Tatupu gets another DUI, he'd probably be suspended. But he should be fine to play 16 games this season.
