Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright was arrested for a felony DUI on Monday morning, according to a report.

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano will have his discipline tested early as newly signed cornerback Eric Wright was arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of a felony DUI, according to a report by Andrew Blankstein of Los Angeles Times.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence near Staples Center downtown early Monday after being involved in an injury accident, Los Angeles police said.

According to the report, Wright allegedly told officers that he had been drinking earlier at a friends house, but refused to submit to a breathalyzer or take a field sobriety test. Wright was booked for a felony DUI, because the accident involved an injury, and is being held in downtown Los Angeles on $100,000 bail.

The Bucs signed Wright in the 2012 NFL offseason to a five-year, $38 million deal with $15.5 million in guaranteed money.
