Chiefs CB Smith arrested after crash
Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith crashed into a light post with his vehicle and was arrested early Monday morning in Kansas City.
Smith was charged with operating a vehicle with .08 percent or more of alcohol in his blood, careless driving and driving without proof of insurance, The Kansas City Star reported.
Smith, who started 15 of 16 regular-season games last season, was trying to make a left turn at an intersection when he broke the light post, according to Kansas City police.
KCTV reported that Smith refused medical attention at the scene before he was taken into custody. Smith practiced Tuesday but appeared to be working with the second team defense.
"We are aware of the situation involving Sean Smith," the Chiefs said Tuesday in a statement. "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 joined the Chiefs in 2013 after four seasons with the Miami Dolphins. The 26-year-old is beginning the second-year of a three-year, $16.5 million contract.
