Washington senior linebacker Azeem Victor has been suspended indefinitely from the team after he was arrested over the weekend. According to King County Jail records, Victor was booked into custody at 4:16 a.m. Sunday after being arrested on suspicion of DUI. He was released from custody at 10:16 a.m. Sunday after posting $1,000 bail. “We take these matters very seriously, and have suspended Azeem from our team indefinitely as we continue to gather details about this incident,” UW coach Chris Petersen said in a statement. Victor was driving 76 mph “in an aggressive and unsafe manner” on northbound Interstate 5 near downtown Seattle early Sunday, according to the arrest report obtained by KOMO News. After being pulled over by a Washington State Patrol trooper, Victor had a blood alcohol content measured at 0.097 and 0.092. The state’s legal limit is 0.08. Victor has had a tumultuous senior season already. An Associated Press preseason first-team All-American, he was suspended for the season opener at Rutgers for a failed drug test. In October, he lost his starting job at middle linebacker.
