For the second time in two months, a member of the Bucs organization has been arrested for driving under the influence. Once again, it’s not a Bucs player.
Ileana Morales and Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times reports that assistant to the head coach Jayson Kaiser was arrested shortly after midnight Wednesday morning.
Police say he was driving with his lights off and was pulled over. He denied drinking despite slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and smelling like alcohol. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
Listed as “Jay” on the team’s website, Kaiser’s role on the team is a bit of a grab bag.
“Kaiser manages several elements of Morris’s off-field agenda, including the day-to-day agenda, player and staff communications and the football calendar, including the offseason programs, mini-camps and training camp,” the Bucs website reads.
Kaiser reportedly often drives Morris around, but Morris told Stroud Wednesday morning that he was not with Kaiser at the time of his arrest.
