Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been charged with driving under the influence stemming from his arrest last month in Seattle’s University District.

According to a release from the City Attorney’s Office, Seferian-Jenkins registered a blood-alcohol level of .18 percent – more than twice the state’s legal limit – when he was arrested following a car accident on March 9.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement released by the school Tuesday that Seferian-Jenkins remains indefinitely suspended following the DUI charge and that he “has already begun to take the necessary steps to return at the appropriate time.”

Sarkisian suspended Seferian-Jenkins indefinitely four days after his arrest, telling reporters that his status would be re-evaluated once police completed their investigation.
