Leroy Hill charged with domestic violence only days after starting probation

On April 1, Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill received a sentence of 12 months probation on a marijuana possession charge. He already has allegedly violated its terms.

According to, Hill was arrested Saturday night for domestic violence.

Per the report, Issaquah (Wash.) police responded to a complaint at Hill’s home. They determined that his live-in girlfriend had suffered injuries. She told police that Hill had inflicted the damage.

Though unrelated to the charge that resulted in probation, the deal is that the guy who avoids jail time must stay out of trouble. Also, the standard of proof is much lower; though guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is necessary for a conviction, probation may be revoked based on a preponderance of the evidence, as determined by the trial judge.

Bottom line? Hill could be heading for the slammer.
