Seahawks LB Lofa Tatupu Pleads Guilty to DUI Charge

Posted: Updated:

KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu has pleaded guilty to a charge of driving under the influence.      

After his plea Monday, Tatupu was sentenced by Kirkland Municipal Court Judge Michael Lambo to serve one day in jail and pay fines totaling $1,255.      

Tatupu was arrested May 10 in Kirkland after he was pulled over for speeding and driving erratically.      

At the police station two hours later, Tatupu registered 0.155 and 0.158 in breath test readings, nearly twice the state intoxication threshold of 0.08.      

On March 25, the Seahawks had signed the third-year, 25-year-old Tatupu to a $42 million, six-year contract extension.
