Former USC and San Diego Chargers football star Junior Seau sustained unknown injuries Monday morning after the car he was driving plunged off a cliff in San Diego County.

The incident occurred after he was arrested in Oceanside on suspicion of domestic violence. An Oceanside Police Department spokesman said he could not comment on the case and that a statement would be released soon. He said his department was not investigating the accident.

The crash occurred in Carlsbad, south of Oceanside, when the sport utility vehicle driven by Seau, who also played for the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots, went over a beachside cliff.

The 41-year-old had been released from a San Diego County jail facility just before the crash.

[Updated at 11:14 a.m: Oceanside police released a statement detailing Seau's arrest, which occurred early Monday, at 12:20 a.m.

Junior Seau was arrested for the alleged assault of his ... live-in girlfriend. The victim reportedly sustained minor injuries that did not require medical treatment. On October 17, 2010 at 10:13 p.m. police were dispatched to the Seau residence on South Strand in Oceanside to investigate the report of a domestic violence assault. The 25-year-old victim reported that Junior Seau assaulted her during a verbal argument. Seau was not at the residence when police arrived.

Seau called the victim while police were on scene and spoke to the officers; he agreed to return to the home. Shortly after midnight Seau drove back to the scene and he was arrested without incident as he approached the residence.

Police said Seau was taken to the Vista Detention Facility, where he posted bail.]

Get help Junior... and leave those young girls alone.

She is probably looking for active players...

Junior probably needs counseling in a major way and probably some meds to go with it. I'm sure that it takes some doing to get used to not busting people up when you've been doing it your whole life.

don't bust up the woman...

after he gets help he should try coaching.... if you can't play the next best thing is trying to coach up the next generation.

Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau says he fell asleep at the wheel when he drove off a cliff hours after his arrest early this morning and was not trying to kill himself.

TMZ reports that Seau told police that he wasn't trying to commit suicide when he drove his Cadillac Escalade off a cliff in Carlsbad, California. He says he nodded off while driving.

The crash came hours after he was arrested on felony domestic violence charges and accused of attacking a woman described as his 25-year-old live-in girlfriend.

Seau reportedly showed no signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but a blood test was taken shortly after the incident.

Turns out he just jumped on top of the truck long after it had crashed....

Perhaps his cat Toonces was driving at the time.

Not buying Junior's story.

I think what really happened is that Brady told him that his facial hair made him look like a pu$$.
