This from Pro Football Talk's Curtis Crabtree:

Hill was arrested for fourth-degree assault and unlawful imprisonment. The assault would be a gross misdemeanor while the unlawful imprisonment would be a Class C felony charge in Washington state.ย The latter would carry a sentence of up to five years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000 if Hill is charged and convicted.

After this latest incident, there's no question that Hill's off-field incidents are beginning to pile up, testing the patience of those in the Seahawks organization as well as the fans.

The 30-year-old, who is set to become a free agent this spring, has played all seven of his NFL seasons with the Seahawks. But in recent years, Hill has made news for his mistakes and poor decision-making off the field rather than his play on it.

Hill was arrested for domestic violence back in April 2010, and has been arrested twice in recent years for marijuana-related offenses, per Crabtree.

Hill recorded 47 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 13 regular-season appearances in 2012, and he racked up seven tackles in two playoff games for the Seahawks this January.
