    Third-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has already been on thin ice with his team, and he made things much worse on Friday morning after being arrested for driving under the influence.

    Via the Tampa Bay Times, the 2014 second-round pick was stopped by Florida Highway Patrol at 3:42 a.m. after he was observed driving 75-80 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, made an improper lane change (cutting off the highway trooper in the process), and “weaving back and forth.”

    The arrest report says Seferian-Jenkins had glassy eyes and his breath smelled of alcohol. He was also “agitated,” slurred his speech, and had trouble with his balance, leaning on things to help himself. He refused to provide a breath sample to measure his blood-alcohol level and “performed poorly” on the administered field-sobriety tests.

    Seferian-Jenkins was booked at 6 a.m. and charged with DUI, and also faces a misdemeanor charge of violating a court-ordered ignition interlock device restriction which was put in place after a 2013 arrest for DUI in Washington state.
