Tampa Bay TE Seferian-Jenkins arrested for second DUI

From the Tampa Bay-Times:

Two days before the Bucs’ home opener, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early Friday morning and was charged with two misdemeanor counts, including driving under the influence.

Seferian-Jenkins, 23, was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol at 3:42 a.m. Friday and was booked at the Orient Road Jail at 6:24 a.m., charged with misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and violating a court-ordered Ignition Interlock Device restriction from a previous arrest for DUI in Washington in 2013.

He was released from jail at 12:13 p.m. on $750 bond…

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.

Seferian-Jenkins pleaded guilty to a DUI charge in 2013 while he was in college at the University of Washington. He was arrested in March 2013 and was a second-round draft pick of the Bucs in 2014.
