Seattle Seahawks quarterback Josh Portis was pulled over on May 5 for speeding. It was then that a Washington State Patrol officer noticied “a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle” and that the driver “had watery bloodshoot eyes.”
Portis, 25, later submitted to two breathalyzers and his blood alcohol concentration readings were recorded as 0.092 and 0.078. The legal limit in Washington state is 0.08.
He was expected to compete with Brady Quinn and Jerrod Johnson for the backup job behind Russell Wilson.
