Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was arrested on Tuesday after the car he was driving crashed into a light post. He was given citations for DUI, careless driving and failure to present proof of insurance.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Sean Lee was arrested on June 10. 

Lee was subsequently cited for DUI, careless driving and failure to present proof of insurance, per The Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor: 

"Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was cited for driving under the influence and careless driving after an officer allegedly saw him drive into a light pole early Monday morning in Kansas City. 

"Kansas City police say an officer observed Smith, 26, attempting to make a left turn at 12th Street and Grand Boulevard when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a light post. 

"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. 

"The Chiefs issued a statement Tuesday regarding the alleged incidnet. 

"'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.'

"Smith was at practice Tuesday as the Chiefs kicked off their third week of organized training activities. However, he took the majority of his reps with the second team as Ron Parker -- a backup last year -- got most of the work with the first team. 

"Smith, 26, signed a three-year deal worth $16.5 million with the Chiefs as a free agent last offseason. He logged 47 tackles and two interceptions last season as the Chiefs went 11-5 and made the playoffs." 

KCTV5.com notes the incident occurred at around 12:30 a.m. CST on June 9, citing a report from Kansas City police.  

The 26-year-old Smith is a native of Pasadena, Calif. and was originally drafted 61st overall in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. He spent the first four seasons of his pro career in Miami before signing with the Chiefs in 2013. He has amassed 257 tackles, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and seven interceptions in 79 career games, per ESPN stats
