Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early Friday morning and charged with driving under the influence.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Seferian-Jenkins was stopped at 3:42 a.m. and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail in Tampa, Fla., at 6:24 a.m. He was stopped after entering southbound Interstate 275 traveling at 75-80 mph in a 55-mph zone.


Seferian-Jenkins, 23, also faces a misdemeanor charge of violating a court-ordered Ignition Interlock Device restriction from a previous arrest for DUI in 2013 while attending the University of Washington. He later pleaded guilty to DUI.

Seferian-Jenkins, a second-round pick of the Bucs in 2014, was booted on the final day of OTAs in June by new coach Dirk Koetter for not knowing where to line up.

Seferian-Jenkins had two catches for 14 yards last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He had a 30-yard reception in the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.


The Bucs host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in their home opener.
