According to the Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Bay police officers spotted Jonsen “straddling lane markers, speeding and weaving,” and driving in a manner that was “indicative of impairment.” Officers stopped him at 1505 N Dale Mabry Highway. In their report, they said that Jonsen appeared to be impaired, and he was arrested at 3:18 am.

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht released a statement about Jonsen’s arrest on Monday, shortly after Jonsen was released.

“We expect all members of our organization to uphold the high standards that have been established,” Licht said via Greg Auman. “We are aware of the situation regarding Travis Jonsen from earlier this morning and will refrain from further comment at this time while the legal process continues.”

Jonsen has been a practice squad player for the Bucs for the last two years.

He has never appeared in an NFL game, and this arrest is not going to help.
