Biggs: Bucs' lineman Johnson charged with DUI

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Marcus Johnson has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence this morning after police allegedly found him asleep at the wheel at a busy intersection just outside of Raymond James Stadium and within blocks of some infamous Tampa night spots. A cynic might say the winless Bucs (0-7) have been asleep at the wheel all season.

Police say Johnson was asleep in a 2010 Chevrolet Impala at about 4 a.m. at the intersection of W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and N Dale Mabry Highway. A police officer awoke Johnson and then a DUI investigator was called to the scene. Police said he had the smell of alcohol on his breath, displayed a noticeable “sway” and performed poorly on some field sobriety tests. He refused a breath test.

Johnson, who played previously in Oakland and Minnesota, was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail at 6 a.m. His nail was set at $500.
