SEATTLE (AP) -- Star Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

The Seattle City Attorney's Office filed the misdemeanor count against him Tuesday, saying his blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent, more than twice the state limit of .08 percent.

Seferian-Jenkins was arrested March 9 following a late-night car accident. A police report said he had a bloody nose consistent with hitting his face on the windshield and the strong odor of alcohol. He was transported to a hospital for treatment.

Seferian-Jenkins was indefinitely suspended from the team following the arrest. Prosecutors said he would be sent a summons to appear in court at a later date.

He was a third-team All-American selection by the AP last season.
