Report: Will Smith’s blood alcohol level over legal limit when he was shot
The blood alcohol level of former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith was significantly over the legal limit when he was shot and killed in April, reports The Times-Picayune.
Smith, who was shot eight times when he was killed after a traffic accident, reportedly had a blood alcohol level of 0.24% at the time of his death, which is three times Louisiana’s legal limit of 0.08%.
Smith’s wife Racquel was shot twice in her legs during the incident, but survived the shooting.
The murder suspect in Smith’s death is 28-year-old former semi-professional football player Cardell Hayes, who was indicted on charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder. Hayes has pleaded not guilty.
Smith last played for the Saints in 2012.
