Riverview baseball coach Bill Leiby was arrested and charged with driving under the influence late Friday night. 

Leiby, who just finished his ninth season with the Sharks and coached at East Bay for five years before that, was arrested at 11:41 p.m. at Brandon Town Center and was booked at a Hillsborough County jail after refusing sobriety testing, according to Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office online records.

Leiby, also a physical education teacher at Riverview, was released Saturday morning after paying a $500 bond. 

This past season Leiby, 39, led the Sharks to a 12-12 record, with the season ending in a Class 8A, District 7 semifinal loss to Plant. Riverview's last playoff appearance was in 2012. 

A call to Riverview's athletic director was not immediately returned.
