Ex-Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman avoids jail time in sentencing for hit-and-run, vehicular assault conviction

SEATTLE — Former Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman was sentenced Friday to 240 hours of community service and 12 months of community supervision for hit-and-run and vehicular assault in connection with a car crash last year that injured another driver.

Coleman was also ordered to pay restitution to the victim.

Coleman pleaded guilty in King County Superior Court on Oct. 6 as part of an agreement that he hoped would lead to no  jail time.

Coleman told police he had smoked “spice” — a form of synthetic marijuana — about an hour before the October 2015 crash in Bellevue.

Police say Coleman’s truck was traveling at 60 mph in a 35 mph zone and hit a Honda Civic. The driver of the Civic suffered a broken collarbone.
