Chiefs’ Sean Smith busted for DUI

sean smithAccording to the Kansas City Star,  Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was cited for DUI after hitting a light pole while driving in Kansas City.

Kansas City police say an officer observed Smith, 26, attempting to make a left turn at 12th Street and Grand Boulevard when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a light post.

Police say Smith appeared confused and began mumbling statements the officer did not understand. The officer then asked if he needed medical attention, but Smith said he did not.

The Chiefs issued a statement.

“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 was at practice Tuesday as the Chiefs kicked off their third week of organized training activities. However, he took the majority of his reps with the second team as Ron Parker — a backup last year — got most of the work with the first team.
