During the investigation, Coleman told police he had smoked ''Spice'' - lumped in as synthetic marijuana - about an hour before the crash. 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 when his car was flipped over.

Coleman is a free agent. His contract with Seattle expired after last season.
