Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is trying to instill a new level of discipline and accountability in Tampa Bay. He's unlikely to be happy that cornerback Eric Wright was arrested on a felony DUI charge near Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles early Monday.

That's according to the Los Angeles Times, which reports Wright was involved in an accident in downtown L.A., arrested on a felony DUI charge after refusing to take a breathalyzer test, and and booked into jail downtown in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Wright wasn't injured in the incident, but the driver of the other vehicle "complained of pain but refused medical treatment," according to the Times. Wright also admitted to police on the scene he had been drinking.

The cornerback was one of three big signings by Tampa Bay this offseason, along with wideout Vincent Jackson and guard Carl Nicks.
