Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman suspended after felony hit and run, agents issue statement

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman is suspended indefinitely by the team after being arrested early Thursday morning and charged with vehicular assault and felony hit and run. Coleman, 24, was arrested at 1:20 a.m. and booked into the King County Correctional Facility in Seattle. He was denied bail. Coleman's agents, Derrick Fox and Mark Bloom, issued the following statement: "On the evening of October 15, 2015, Seattle Seahawk Fullback Derrick Coleman, Jr. was involved in a two-car collision soon after leaving a team meeting," the statement said. " While the facts of the case are still being determined, it seems  Derrick may have fallen asleep while driving home from a Seahawks’ facility. "The health and well-being of all involved is our primary concern, and we are thankful to report that both parties are expected to make a full recovery. We will continue to work closely with the local officials while a full investigation is being conducted." Coleman is in his fourth NFL season. He's the first legally deaf offensive player to play in the NFL. "The Seattle Seahawks have suspended Derrick Coleman indefinitely pending further information," the team said in a statement.
