Former Bucs quarterback Shaun King addresses DUI arrest on his radio show

TAMPA — Former Bucs quarterback Shaun King was arrested early Sunday on a DUI charge.

King, 33, of St. Petersburg, was stopped at 2:12 a.m. on U.S. 301 and Holland Road in southern Hillsborough County, according to jail records. He refused to take a blood-alcohol test. He was released about 10 a.m. Sunday after posting $500 bail.

King played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1999 to 2003. He later was an analyst for ESPN and more recently was hired as an analyst for Bright House Sports Network and co-host of an afternoon show on WQYK-AM 1010.

King appeared Monday as usual on his weekday radio show. He addressed the issue briefly at the top of the show, mostly thanking those who have called him with support.

"As most of you know, I was involved in a very unfortunate circumstance over the weekend,'' King told listeners. "I can't comment on it, but I definitely appreciate the support.''
