Junior Seau arrested for DV, then drives off cliff with his SUV

Retired football player Junior Seau was arrested in San Diego early this morning for domestic violence, and booked into the Vista Detention Facility around 2:00am. He was released at 3:20am.

He then, a few hours later, drove his SUV off of a cliff in Oceanside. The retired NFL superstar sustained injuries in the wreck. TMZ reported the photo of Seau’s SUV which landed at the bottom of a cliff several feet from the beach.

Seau has been transported to a local hospital.
