According to the Tampa Bay Times, Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early Friday morning and is still in custody after being charged with driving under the influence.

According to the FHP, 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.

He was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol around 4 a.m.

The Buccaneers play at home Sunday against the Rams.
