SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Seattle Seahawks running back Quinton Ganther has been released from Sacramento County Jail in California following an early morning arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.

The Sacramento County Sherriff's inmate registry showed the 25-year-old Ganther was booked into jail at 6:50 a.m. Saturday and released hours later.

His bail had been listed as $1,482. The native of Oakland had a court appearance scheduled for Wednesday, according to The Seattle Times.

The Seahawks had no comment other than to say they were aware of the situation and gathering information.

The Seahawks signed Ganther this winter as a free agent from Washington. He ran for 199 yards in eight games last season for the Redskins, after playing in 15 games over the previous two seasons for Tennessee.
