Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. The Tampa Bay Times reports:
According to the [Florida Highway Patrol], Seferian-Jenkins was driving at 75-80 mph in a 55 mph zone as he entered southbound I-275 near State Road 60. He made an improper lane change, cutting off an FHP trooper and “weaving back and forth.”
The arrest report states that Seferian-Jenkins was observed to have glassy eyes and the smell of alcohol and was “agitated,” with slurred speech and leaning on objects for balance. He “performed poorly” on field sobriety tests and declined to provide a breath sample to measure his blood-alcohol level.
Seferian Jenkins, who caught a 30-yard touchdown pass in Week 1, pled guilty to a DUI in 2013 when he was at University of Washington.
UPDATE: It appears as though he’s no longer a Buc:
