CARLSBAD, Calif. -- NFL football player Junior Seau was arrested early Monday on suspicion of domestic violence, then drove his Cadillac SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad after being released from jail, authorities said.

Seau, the sole occupant of the white 2004 SUV, was taken to Scripps La Jolla Hospital for treatment of apparently minor injuries.
Earlier in the morning, Seau was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. Seau's 25-year-old, live-in girlfriend told authorities that Seau assaulted her during an argument at his Oceanside home, according to Oceanside police. She appeared to have minor injuries and did not require medical treatment.
He was taken into custody, and the San Diego County Sheriff's Department confirmed Seau was released at about 3:20 a.m.
"At this point we think he's fine, but we really don't have any comment," said Richard Doan, who answered the cell phone of Bette Hoffman, who works for Seau's foundation. "There are no injuries but he seems to be a little shaken up."
Details of the arrest, which was first reported by TMZ.com, were not immediately available.
Sometime after his release, Seau drove his vehicle off a cliff in Carlsbad. A witness told our sister station CBS News 8 that he was seen driving about 70 miles per hour and made no attempt to brake or slow down.
The cause of Seau's solo traffic crash was unclear, though police said there was no evidence that he was intoxicated at the time and apparently was not in a suicidal state of mind.
