Russell Wilson’s backup Geno Smith was belligerent and combative with arresting officers during his DUI arrest on Monday.
Smith stepped in for Wilson while he was injured in October, and led the Seattle Seahawks on a three game losing streak that was finally broken against the abysmal 1-6 Jacksonville Jaguars on Halloween.
The quarterback’s poor performance is the least of his worries, he was pulled over in his Rolls Royce for going 96 in a 60 while under the influence at two in the morning, after his team defeated the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
In their report, Washington State Patrol officers said that in addition to flying down the highway, Smith changed lanes without signaling and was overall driving erratically. When they pulled him over, they could smell alcohol and Smith admitted to drinking wine prior to driving.
While performing a field sobriety test, Smith was argumentative and refused to complete the tests, so they arrested him on the spot. While driving to the police station, the officer said the player made a snide remark about his penis size.
“I joked with him about how my wife thinks I work too much. Somehow he said that’s because ‘you have a little d***.'” the officer wrote in the arrest report. “I said, wow, maybe that is the problem, then he said you have a little d***, ‘you have little d*** syndrome.'”
After Smith refused to take a breathalyzer, they took him to the hospital to get a blood alcohol level, which the Seahawks player resisted and became combative. They had to restrain his arms and legs to get the blood drawn.
“I’ll f*** every one of y’all up,” Smith reportedly said. “You don’t want to see me out of these cuffs, you don’t want to know what will happen.” He also claimed they “were going to regret this and that we would all be famous for this.”
He was arrested for a DUI after the blood draw. Smith released a statement following the event.
“Being arrested brings a taint onto the reputation that is impossible to undo, no matter what really happened,” Smith commented. “I’m asking all of you to hold back on judging me the same as you would do for a friend or family member. I’ll have more to say down the road & ask that you bare with me.”
