Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of driving while under the influence — and was promptly cut by the teamlater in the day.
According to a release from the Florida Highway Patrol, a trooper was traveling in his cruiser when he saw Seferian-Jenkins enter southbound Interstate 275 going between 75 and 80 miles per hour. The release says the football player’s vehicle then cut off the trooper’s cruiser and began weaving back and forth.
Dashcam footage of the traffic stop, published by TMZ, shows officers talking to Seferian-Jenkins as if they are going to let him off with a warning — before he begins conversing with them in slurred speech.
“I just want to go home to my quarterback’s house, where we’re meeting, about to watch ‘American Horror Story,’ Episode 2,” Seferian-Jenkins said, perhaps revealing a late-night TV sesh at Jameis Winston’s place.
Once in custody in the police car, Seferian-Jenkins gets even loopier.
“I got to take a huge s–t. Am I good to take a s–t?” he asked a police officer, who implored him not to defecate in the car, saying he’s seen it before.
“Not me, I’m not that f–ked up,” Seferian-Jenkins said with a laugh. “I’m not gonna s–t near you car. But when we get there, can I take a s–t?”
Seferian-Jenkins, 23, is being charged with DUI and violation of an ignition interlock device restriction from an arrest in Washington in 2013. He refused a breath test at the Hillsborough County Jail.
Seferian-Jenkins was drafted by the Bucs in 2014. He has 45 career receptions, including seven touchdowns, in 18 games.
