On July 22, Seattle Seahawks fullback Owen Schmitt was sentenced to 24 hours of community service and two years probation and ordered to pay fines, fees, and court costs of $2,130 after pleading guilty to a charge of reckless driving.

On June 25, Schmitt was arrested in Black Diamond, Washington for alleged drunken driving (DUI).

The 24-year-old fullback, who played his college days at West Virginia and was on the cover of the Playstation Portable version of the NCAA Football 2009 video game, issued an apology for his actions after his arrest.

According to police, the officer who arrested Schmitt initially stopped him for weaving in traffic and following too close.
