Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill has reportedly been arrested following a domestic violence incident.

Mike Ferreri of KOMO-TV in Seattle reports that Hill has been arrested in Issaquah, Wash., but that he has not been formally charged with any crimes stemming from a Tuesday incident. Hill is coming out of contract with the Seahawks and is a pending free agent.

Details at this point remain scarce but Hill has a history of off-field issues that have marred his career. This is the second time he has been arrested for domestic violence in four years following a 2010 incident that was later dismissed.

Hill has also been arrested two times with marijuana involved, including an incident last February in Atlanta. Police said there was a smell of marijuana coming from the apartment he was occupying with his girlfriend. Charges were ultimately dropped.
