Bruce Smith Pleads Guilty To DUI

Comments (0)

On January 14, NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Smith pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in a court in Virginia Beach.


Smith has been ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 and complete an alcohol-safety program. He was also sentenced to a 90-day suspended jail term and had his license restricted for a year.


On May 14, the former Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins defensive end was arrested after he was pulled over by police and failed field sobriety tests. He also refused to submit to a breathalyzer test.


Smith later admitted to drinking wine with his friends in Norfolk before driving home.


Ironically, one month after Smith’s arrest, the arresting officer crashed his vehicle while off-duty and was later convicted of DUI.


The arrest was Smith’s third for DUI within the past 13 years. The first was dismissed and he was acquitted of the second.
