Marcus Johnson, an offensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has been released from the team following his arrest for driving under the influence.


According to a Tampa police lieutenant, he discovered Johnson on October 27, sleeping in a car near Raymond James Stadium, where the Bucs play.


The lieutenant then woke the 27-year-old lineman. A DUI investigator reportedly smelled alcohol on Johnson’s breath and police say that his eyes were glassy and when he stoop up without support, he swayed.


Police arrested Johnson, who was released after posting $500 bail.


The team announced his dismissal later that day.
