Florida authorities recently accused a professional football player of driving a vehicle while under the influence after a traffic incident, a report of NFL.com stated on September 23.

According to reports, Austin Seferian-Jenkins was stopped by Florida Highway Patrol personnel on September 21 after they observed him driving with excessive speed. The tight end player reportedly had an estimated speed of 75 to 80 mph before he was stopped. Seferian-Jenkins was transported to Orient Road Jail, and he was later waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. State authorities say the player was also arrested in 2013 regarding a DUI. Seferian-Jenkins did not have an interlocking device installed in his vehicle at the time of his most recent arrest, which was a requirement of his former DUI arrest.
