Not Guilty Plea for Lofa Tatupu

Seahawks Linebacker, Lofa Tatupu, formally entered a plea of not guilty to charges stemming from a DUI arrest last month. His legal team is planning a defense, though the evidence and Washington State laws appear stacked against him.

When Tatupu was stopped in Kirkland Washington, he declined to take a breathalyzer test, but later blew marks of 0.155 and 0.158 at the Kirkland Police Department. Washington State laws list 0.08 as the presumption for legal drunkenness.

A league suspension is not likely, but a conviction may land him in the NFL’s substance abuse program.

The Eagle has landed

With the inability to soar to projected heights, former Trojan, LaJuan Ramsey lands with a thud. The Philadelphia Eagles officially released the defensive end last week, and finding another opportunity may weigh difficult.
