Tampa, Florida - Shelton Quarles, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coordinator of pro scouting, was arrested overnight and charged with drunk driving.
Quarles, a former linebacker for the Bucs, was arrested overnight around 2:30 a.m. on the Ashley St. ramp leading to Interstate 275 Southbound.
According to jail records, Quarles remains in jail at this time. Bail is set at $500. Quarles refused to submit to testing at the time of the arrest.
Quarles was promoted to his current post in January. The former Pro Bowl performer was hired as a pro scout by the team in 2007. With his promotion, he essentially took the place of former quarterback Doug Williams, who was forced out. Quarles is subject to discipline under the league's personal conduct policy.
Another former Buccaneer, Jerramy Stevens, was also arrested in an unrelated incident on Thursday.
