Report: Chiefs CB Sean Smith arrested for drunk driving
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was arrested early Monday morning for drunk driving, according to a report on Tuesday from KCTV.
The 26-year-old was pulled over by police in Kansas City at approximately 12:30 a.m. after they saw a car strike a light post at an intersection. Smith refused EMS assistance and was booked on three citations: "operating a vehicle with a BAC of 0.08 or more, driving a vehicle in a careless manner by attempting to make a left turn at an intersection and failing to slow down causing the vehicle to run into a light pole and no insurance," according to the report.
The Chiefs issued a statement to KCTV in which they called the incident "disappointing."
"We are aware of the situation involving Sean Smith. Whenever one of our players is involved in an incident like this it is disappointing. We will have no further comment at this time as this is an ongoing legal matter."
A standout at Utah, Smith was drafted by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 NFL draft. He signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Chiefs in March 2013.
