Seahawks Rookie DT Malik McDowell Arrested For Disorderly Conduct

TMZ Sports reports that Seahawks rookie DT Malik McDowell was arrested this weekend for disorderly conduct in Atlanta, GA.

According to the report, McDowell’s arrest came after a cop saw him get into a verbal altercation outside the front doors of a club in which he was shouting at the head of security about $600 he believed the club owed him.

However, the staff and even McDowell’s friend told him that they didn’t have the cash he was demanding.

The club eventually allowed McDowell back in, but the officer says he was kicked out again after still shouting about the money and refusing to leave without it.

The cop says she was told McDowell poured out a couple bottles of liquor inside and got booted.

McDowell allegedly told the officer upon being arrested: “F*** both of ya’ll hoe ass n*****, p**** ass cops, I bet I get out, I got more money than ya’ll, ya’ll ain’t got enough money for me, p**** ass crackers, broke ass n*****.

He was later released on a $325 bond.

McDowell is still recovering from a concussion and facial injuries he suffered this summer after being involved in an incident. The Seahawks officially placed McDowell on the non-football injury list.

McDowell, 21, was selected with the No. 35 overall pick by the Seahawks after they elected to trade down with the Jaguars. In total, the Seahawks gave up the No. 34 overall pick and acquired a second- and a sixth-round pick in this year’s draft for the right to select McDowell.

According to, McDowell will receive a four-year contract worth $6,955,406, which includes a signing bonus of $3,198,476.

During his three-year college career at Michigan State, McDowell recorded 88 total tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, and scored one defensive touchdown in 32 games with the Spartans.
