Jayson Kaiser, an assistant to Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris, was arrested early this morning and charged with driving under the influence.

Kaiser was pulled over in the wee hours on Dale Mabry Highway while driving his 2006 Hyundai without the lights on, according to the St. Petersburg Times. The police indicated that Kaiser’s speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol.

Kaiser was arrested and he denied to take a Breathalyzer or perform field sobriety tests. Per the report, Kaiser frequently chauffeurs Morris around but the head coach said he was at home when Kaiser was pinched. As a league employee, Kaiser is subject to punishment under the personal conduct policy and the current lockout will not help him avoid any potential discipline.

Buccaneers director of pro scouting Shelton Quarles was arrested last month and charged with drunken driving. So, it’s not just the players in Tampa who are running afoul from the law.
