Seahawks QB Josh Portis was pulled over and arrested on May 5 after he was caught doing 80 in a 60 MPH zone. Once the officer pulled him over, he noticed a “strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle” and wrote on the report that Portis had “watery, bloodshot eyes”.

Portis declined to take a breathalyzer test, but eventually submitted to two of them after he was taken into custody. His blood alcohol level was .092 on one test and .078 on the other; the legal limit in Washington is .080. He reportedly admitted he had been drinking tequila at a Cinco De Mayo event, but not until he’d tried the old, “Don’t you know who I am?” card.

‚ÄúPortis asked me if I knew who he was and I stated yes,” the trooper wrote. “(The passenger) exited the vehicle and began to cry. (The passenger) stated I was arresting a Seahawk, and I was going to ruin him. ‚Ķ (The passenger) shouted at me and stated she couldn’t believe that I was from Seattle, and was arresting a Seahawk.‚ÄĚ

25-year old Portis just signed a contract with the Seahawks that will see him bringing in $480,000 a year for two years, though he is up against Brady Quinn and Jerrod Johnson for the position of backup quarterback behind Russell Wilson.
