Junior Seau

I Wasn't Trying to Kill Myself

10/18/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Junior Seau told police that he wasn't trying to commit suicide when he drove off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA early this morning -- insisting that he simply fell asleep at the wheel.

Junior Seau

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Seau told police that he simply nodded off in the driver's seat of his Cadillac Escalade in the hours after his arrest for allegedly attacking his 25-year-old girlfriend -- and never intended to drive off the cliff.

We're told Seau showed no outward signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs ... but a blood test was taken shortly after the incident and results are expected back some time in the next 6 weeks.

The accident is still under investigation.

21, he's a retired football player. Played a long time in the NFL. Around 16 seasons I would say. He's like a borderline Hall of Famer, in my opinion anyway, but if this hadn't happened, nobody would care. Seau isn't a memorable all time great player, so when he retired, he just vanished. The vast majority of professional althletes do.

Ha Ha Ha what BS he lives off Ocean Street. My company owns a towne house two blocks from him. He drove of Carlsbad Blvd at the only spot the road gets any where near the edge. The Carlsbad PD is not near there niether is his house. What a liar!! He would have to speed and turn right across the parking lot to the beach to get to the edge. DUH he is lying.

Maybe some of the Active chargers should have driven their cars off a cliff.

Who is this bastard? He is a recently retired pro football player who was a very good one and whose jock you couldn't carry, son.

And I thought he was one of the few NFL players that was actually a good family man...Great football player though.

And #2, he isn't Mexican...your hatred blinds your ability to think intelligently.

Q    

He skated on a charge with his brothers when they almost beat a man near to death for a mistaken verbal insult about their mother...he's led a privliedged life his whole life. He's a known bully from junior high days, the kind of kid who was always given anything they wanted because they were jocks...he was a smart kid, but a dangerous one and now it comes out. Keep your distance 25 year old females, he's probably also a former roids user and gets rages and is mad now that the "dance" is over. These ex athletes are a danger to most---especially defenseless young females.

Nice going Junior---guess Karma finally caught up with you for that beatdown you and your Samoan brothers gave to that man so many years ago.

Wow, one year out of football and he's already starting to unravel. First he is 41 and has a 25 year old girlfriend who he probaly has nothing in common with, she just helps him boost that fragile ego of his now that the cheering has stopped and he has to live the rest of his life as an EX player, which is hard for stars to do.

It looks like he is following in the footsteps of Lawrence Taylor and Bernie Kosar as once great players who are now people who can't stop having run ins with the law.

The accident was on Carlsbad Blvd (101) just south of Palomar airport road. The cliff runs very close to the road in this area. I recognize the mobile home park on the east side of the pictures as well as the other land features. There is no parking lot (let alone parking)on this stretch until you reach the top end of South Carlsbad State Beach.

He went off the road just after low tide and high tide was only moderate. There are times the surf comes up to the base of the cliff at high tide. He's lucky this wan't one of those times.

Of course he was not about to commit suicide. You don't commit suicide and in the process crash such a fine car. You buy a cheap rope instead.
