Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith was arrested by police on Sunday night for driving under the influence. Officials have now released a report with details. It shows that the Washington State Patrol stopped the playmaker’s car because it was not only traveling at 96 instead of the permitted 60 miles per hour, but also because it was snaking across several lanes According to the arrest report, the officer noticed a “strong odor of intoxicants and noted that the driver had bloodshot, watery eyes.” Smith then told officers he drank some wine after beating the Arizona Cardinals but stopped 90 minutes before he started driving.
Seahawks quarterback had to be tied up
The athlete refused an alcohol test, whereupon a judge ordered one. Smith was then taken to a hospital. There, despite the presence of the Seahawks security director, he was so upset about the upcoming blood draw that officers had to handcuff him. He was released a few hours later on $1,000 bail. According to ESPN, the King County Attorney’s Office is still waiting for the results of the investigation before a decision can be made on possible charges.
Geno Smith becomes a free agent
The quarterback’s attorney said Monday that his client was cooperating with investigators. “I hope everyone can have an open mind in the fact-finding process,” said attorney Jon Fox. The signal caller is in his third season with the Seahawks. Russell Wilson’s injury saw him play four games in 2021, throwing for 702 yards and five touchdowns with just one interception. Smith will become a free agent at the end of the season. You want the most important NFL news, videos and data right at your fingertips smart phone?
