Former Seahawk Chad Eaton was arrested in Monroe on Saturday for investigation of domestic violence.
Details have not been released, but Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies say that Eaton was booked into the Snohomish County Jail at 3:32 p.m. Saturday for investigation of fourth-degree assault, domestic violence. He paid his $2,500 bail and was released the following afternoon.
Eaton played football for Washington State and nine seasons in the NFL, including three with the Seahawks, before retiring after the 2004 season.
Last year, Eaton’s wife was arrested by King County deputies in response to a domestic-violence complaint. It’s unclear if she was involved in the weekend incident.
