Former NFL player Fred Smoot pulled over for DUI, then urinated on self


Former NFL cornerback Fred Smoot was pulled over for a DUI in December. Smooth, 33, spent nine years in the NFL between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings.

Smoot was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drug and operating while impaired according to court documents.

Famous for his part in the “Love Boat” scandal while with the Vikings, Smoot pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Smoot was initially pulled over around 3:30 am on December 30th by US Capitol Police. The officer pulled Smoot over after he saw Smoot driving an Audi A7 with no tags.

After an officer determined that Smoot was under the influence of alcohol he was arrested and taken to Capitol Police headquarters.

“During processing, in the service area, while handcuffed, the [defendant] peed his pants creating a puddle on the floor,” officer Seth Carll said in an affidavit. “[A police officer] witnessed the urine running down his pant leg and onto the floor. [Smoot] did not express that he had to use the restroom.”

A status hearing on the case is scheduled February 19.
