Chiefs' Sean Smith arrested for DUI

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs CB Sean Smith was arrested early Monday, June 9 on three charges, including driving under the influence.

Earlier today we wondered why at Kansas City Chiefs OTAs, CB Sean Smith was moved back to the second team in place of CB Ron Parker.

Maybe this is related. KCTV-5, citing the police report, says Smith was arrested for DUI early Monday morning.

Kansas City, MO, police say they were patrolling the area of 10th Street and Grand Boulevard about 12:30 a.m. Monday when they saw a driver try to turn left at 12th Street and Grand Boulevard and lose control. Their report said the driver lost control and struck a light post at the intersection.

The driver, later identified as Chiefs Cornerback Sean Smith appeared confused and began mumbling statements that the officer did not understand. The police report said that the officer asked Smith if he needed medical attention, but he said he did not want to be seen by EMS.

The KCTV-5 report says there were three citations:

  • Operating a vehicle of 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
  • No insurance
The KC Star's @TerezPaylor got this statement from the Chiefs: "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."

Smith has two years remaining on his three-year, $16.5 million contract signed last year.

Will Sean Smith be suspended?

Based on past history, probably not. From what I can tell, the NFL usually hands out a fine of two game checks and no suspension on a first-offense DUI. Things obviously get more complicated if this happens again.
