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.
An investigation by the officer revealed the vehicle had major front end damage and undercarriage damage and the light pole was on the sidewalk and broken.
Smith was arrested, booked and cited for driving under the influence, careless driving and failure to present insurance.
“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.”
