Bucs coach's assistant accused of DUI in Tampa

TAMPA — An assistant to the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was arrested early Wednesday on a charge of DUI.

Police said Jayson Kaiser, 37, was driving on N Dale Mabry Highway with the lights off in a white 2006 Hyundai when an officer pulled him over near W Osborne Avenue and noted his speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and he smelled of alcohol. Kaiser was arrested shortly after midnight. He denied drinking and refused to perform any field sobriety tests or take a Breathalyzer test, police said.

Kaiser, also known as Jay, often drives Bucs coach Raheem Morris to events, but Morris said Wednesday morning that he was at home and not with Kaiser during his arrest.

Kaiser was released from jail after posting bail of $500. The car was impounded after he was arrested.

"We are aware of the matter and are in the process of reviewing it internally,'' Bucs spokesman Jonathan Grella said.

Kaiser's the third member of the coaching/front-office staff to be arrested in the past year. Former defensive line assistant Chris Mosley was arrested in September, and pro scouting coordinator Shelton Quarles was arrested in March, both on DUI charges.
