Former Seattle Seahawks running back Spencer Ware has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

Jail records show Ware was booked into jail in Kent, south of Seattle, at 3:21 a.m. Tuesday. KIRO-TV reports he hasn’t been charged and the case was referred to the Maple Valley prosecutor’s office.

The Seahawks waived Ware on Saturday as the team’s roster was trimmed to 53. He played two games for Seattle in 2013 after skipping his final year of eligibility at Louisiana State University to enter the NFL draft.

This is Ware’s second DUI arrest this year. He was arrested in January in Seattle, but that case was dismissed after a judge suppressed evidence gathered after he was stopped.

Ware is scheduled to appear in Maple Valley Municipal Court on Monday.
