Buccaneers CB Eric Wright was arrested and booked on a felony charge of driving under the influence.

According to The Los Angeles Times, police responded to an injury accident near Staples Center about 12:20 a.m. Monday. Wright, who was not hurt in the incident, allegedly said he had been drinking earlier and refused a Breathalyzer or field sobriety test.
