One of the Chiefs’ starting defensive players reportedly was arrested after a one-car accident on Monday.
According to KCTV5.com, Kansas City police cited Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith for allegedly driving a vehicle while having a blood-alcohol level at or above the legal limit of .08 after he struck a light pole in the city early on Monday morning. According to the published report, the light pole fell to the ground after being hit by Smith’s vehicle. Smith was also cited for careless driving after allegedly not slowing down to make a left turn before hitting the pole.
The Chiefs told KCTV5.com that were “aware” of the alleged incident.
“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,” the Chiefs said, according to the report.
The 26-year-old Smith played all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2013, defending 13 passes and hauling in two interceptions. He joined Kansas City as a free agent in March 2013.
