Bengals' Justin Smith Faces DUI Charge

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Justin Smith was arrested early Tuesday and charged with drunken driving after he failed a breath test, the Montgomery County sheriff's department said.

Smith, 25, was stopped because his truck was weaving. He told police he had five beers, the arrest report said, and he swayed while trying to walk during a field sobriety test.

He had a blood alcohol level of 0.152, the report said, nearly double the state's legal limit.

Smith told authorities at the county jail that he was unemployed, Maj. Ed Copher said.

Smith, who faces a maximum six months in jail and $1,000 fine for the misdemeanor, was released on bond. Typically, first-time offenders are put on probation and ordered to attend an alcohol education course.

He was scheduled for arraignment next Tuesday in Kettering Municipal Court.

Smith was the Bengals' first-round pick - the fourth overall - in the 2001 draft. He set a team rookie record for sacks with 8.5 that year, but his total has declined in the last two years.

A message seeking comment was left for Smith's agent, Jim Steiner. The Bengals did not immediately return a message. Bengals players met with coaches Monday afternoon to review their 28-17 loss in Pittsburgh, then were off until Wednesday morning.

According to the police report, the deputy who pulled over Smith said he smelled alcohol and that Smith had bloodshot eyes and a flushed face. Smith missed when he tried to touch his nose with his index finger during the sobriety test, the report said.

Maybe that's why he sucks....hard to get to the quarterback on a hangover.
