Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau, who was arrested early this morning on domestic violence charges (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/10/18/report-junior-seau-arrested-for-domestic-violence/), is reportedly hospitalized after driving his SUV off a cliff.

TMZ is reporting that Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, California, this morning, just hours after he was released from the Vista Detention Facility. He survived the crash but was injured and transported to a local hospital.

A photo that appears to show Seau's SUV at the bottom of a cliff near a beach has been published by TMZ.

Seau is in his first year of retirement from the NFL after playing his 20th and final NFL season in 2009 for the Patriots. He has always had a reputation as a pillar of the community, and his Seau Foundation raises money for child abuse prevention and college scholarships, among other causes.

Just reported........

Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, Calif., on Monday, just hours after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, KGTV reported.
Seau, 41, was reportedly released from a San Diego detention facility a little more than an hour after being arrested at approximately 2:00 a.m. PT. According to KGTV, the incident involved his live-in girlfriend.
After being released from custody, Seau then drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, according to law enforcement. Seau was pulled from the vehicle by law enforcement officials suffering only bruises and cuts and was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.

Junior Seau arrested, crashes

ESPN.com news services

Junior Seau drove his SUV off a cliff and landed close to the beach in Carlsbad, Calif., early Monday morning after the former All-Pro linebacker was arrested.


He escaped major injury.
Seau was arrested on a charge of felony spousal assault with injury, Oceanside police reported in a statement. He was booked into the Vista Detention Facility early Monday morning and posted bail after 3 a.m. local time, the watch commander told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
Carlsbad police later responded to a 911 call of a single vehicle off the road and dispatched police and fire personnel. Seau's Cadillac SUV was found on the beach 30 feet below the roadside.
Seau, 41, was the only person in the vehicle and was transported to Scripps La Jolla Hospital. Police said Seau was conscious and and remains hospitalized with minor injuries, including cuts and bruises.
Richard Doan, who answered the phone of a woman who works for Seau's foundation, said Seau is shaken up but appears to have escaped serious injury.
An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
Seau was arrested around midnight PT after a report was called in around 10 p.m. The victim was his 25-year-old live-in girlfriend, police said in a statement. She told police that Seau assaulted her during a verbal argument. Police said she sustained minor injuries that did not require medical attention.
Seau was not at the residence when police arrived. He later spoke with police by phone and agreed to return to his home. He was arrested without incident when he approached the residence, police said in the statement.
Seau was a star linebacker at USC before being drafted by the San Diego Chargers as the fifth pick overall in 1990. He led the Chargers to the Super Bowl following the 1994 season and remained in San Diego until being traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2003.
He left football briefly in August 2006 after 13 seasons with San Diego and three with Miami. He signed with the Patriots four days later and started 14 of the 27 games he played for them over two seasons. He retired after the 2007 season, then came out of retirement for the final four games in 2008 before again retiring after that season. Seau played seven regular-season games in 2009, all as a backup, and made 15 tackles.
Seau's arrest and car accident were first reported by TMZ.com.

Information from ESPNLosAngeles.com's Arash Markazi and The Associated Press was used in this report.
