Bruce Smith Receives Suspended Sentence For Virginia Beach DUI

Comments (0)

On July 9, former Buffalo Bills defensive end Bruce Smith was convicted on a drunken driving (DUI) charge, after claims that he failed a sobriety test because of old football injuries.

On May 15, Smith was pulled over in Virginia Beach and refused to submit to a breathalyzer test. He was sentenced to a 90-day suspended jail term, issued a fine of $440, and had his license suspended for a year.

Smith claims that he performed poorly on the sobriety test the arresting officer issued because of old football injuries. The tests included walking a straight line and standing on one leg for 30 seconds.

Smith’s attorney is planning to file an appeal of the decision at an additional hearing set for August 27.

Smith has two prior DUI charges, but the charges were dropped in the other two cases.
