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.

Smith was arrested and taken to police headquarters where he was booked on three citations: operating a vehicle with 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 and no insurance.

Police said Smith's vehicle had major front end and undercarriage damage. The light pole was hit with such force that it was broken and found on the sidewalk.

Last March, Smith signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Chiefs. The Miami Dolphins drafted Smith in 2009 in the second round.

Late in the afternoon, the Chiefs released a statement to KCTV5 saying:

"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."
