Former NFL tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested in Washington State on Friday. Seferian-Jenkins has played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as well as the New York Jets and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It seems that 29-year-old Seferian-Jenkins was booked into a county jail around 9 P.M. on Friday, on charges of misdemeanor assault and felony harassment, and is still in custody, as bail has not been set.
While scant details are available regarding Seferian-Jenkins’ arrest, as per court records obtained by TMZ, he was officially charged with “misdemeanor assault/domestic violence” and “felony harassment threats/domestic violence or death threats.”
This is not the first time Seferian-Jenkins has gotten in trouble with the law. In 2020, he had cut a deal with officials to defer prosecution on his most recent DUI charge, given he stayed out of trouble.
It seems that the aforementioned DUI charge can be pursued again now, in addition to the new misdemeanor assault and felony harassment charges.
