Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who was released by the Seattle Seahawks last week, was formally charged with driving while under the influence, according to a report in the Seattle Times on Wednesday.
According to the report, Lane has an arraignment on March 26 in King County District Court.
Lane was arrested outside of Seattle in January on suspicion of DUI. His blood-alcohol level was well within the legal limit, but Lane admitted to the arresting state trooper that he had smoked marijuana prior to driving.
Lane was released Friday along with Richard Sherman and had two years remaining on his contract. The move cleared $4.75 million in 2018 cap space for the Seahawks.
