Tampa Bay Online is reporting that Matt McCoy, a linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was arrested on Friday night by police for driving while intoxicated near his south Tampa home. Records show that McCoy refused a blood-alcohol test and was released Saturday afternoon on a $500 bail.
The 26-year-old California native was a third-string linebacker who came to Tampa from the Jets as a free agent, and previously played for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team released him on Saturday.
