Seattle running back Quinton Ganther, signed by the Seahawks this offseason, was arrested in Sacramento, California Saturday morning on suspicion of DUI.
Ganther, 25, was booked into the Sacramento County main jail at 6:50 a.m., according to the inmate registry.
Ganther signed with Seattle this offseason after playing last season with Washington where the coaching staff included Sherman Smith, now the Seahawks running backs coach. Ganther is contending for a roster spot as a backup running back and special-teams contributor.
Ganther attended Utah, and spent the first three years of his NFL career with the Tennessee Titans where Smith was previously an assistant.
The Seahawks are looking into the situation, but as per team policy, declined to comment on the pending case.
Ganther was arrested by California Highway Patrol officers, according to the jail registry, which also indicated he remained in custody as of 10:22 a.m. His bail was listed at $1,482, and a court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
