SEATTLE -- Former Seahawk Jeremy Lane, who was released by the team on Friday, has been cited with DUI.

The accusation stems from a January arrest.

The Washington State Patrol says Lane was pulled over on eastbound Interstate 90 on Mercer Island at 2:13 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018.

He was booked into jail, then released four hours later.

A Washington State Patrol report said Lane told the trooper that he had had nothing to drink but had smoked marijuana three hours earlier.

A breath tests showed a blood-alcohol limit of .039, below the legal limit of .08.

Lane later said he didn't want people "thinking he was drunk," the report says.

Mason said Lane then said, "This time I was more high than anything."

Lane is to be arraigned on March 26.
