NFL legend Junior Seau went all “Thelma and Louise” when his white Cadillac SUV went flying off a cliff in Carlsbad, California, yesterday. Well, not exactly. Seau told police that he fell asleep at the wheel, and that it wasn’t a suicide attempt as some have speculated. Seau shockingly only suffered minor injuries despite falling about 100 feet from the roadside. Ouch. That’s a fall that not even Steve-O would attempt.
It was a pretty crappy 24 hours for Seau, who was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend early yesterday morning and released by police at 3 a.m. after posting bail. Hours later his Cadillac went off the cliff, and then someone probably spit in his coffee. All things considered though, Seau is lucky to be alive. Most guys wouldn’t have survived that fall, but then again, most guys aren’t built like Sherman tanks.
