Fred Smoot was an above-average cornerback during his NFL career with the Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings, but his life off of the football field is much more entertaining than watching him play was. The same Smoot that once did some nasty things on a boat back in 2005 was arrested for driving while under the influence on Dec. 30. Big deal, right? Happens all the time. While that may be true, it’s not everyday that we get to talk about a former NFL player who pissed his pants while he was handcuffed. We’ll let The Washingtonian take it from here: Smoot told the Capitol Police officer that he’d had one drink, according to the affidavit, and agreed to a field sobriety test. During a series of tests, Smoot demonstrated ‘many clues of impairment,’ including swaying noticeably, Carll said in the affidavit. Smoot was subsequently arrested and taken to the Capitol Police headquarters at 119 D Street, Northeast, for processing, where he twice refused to take a breathalyzer test. ‘During processing, in the service area, while handcuffed, the [defendant] peed his pants creating a puddle on the floor,’ Carll said in the affidavit. ‘[A police officer] witnessed the urine running down his pant leg and onto the floor. [Smoot] did not express that he had to use the restroom.’” Smoot pleaded not guilty to his DUI charge on Jan. 17 and a status hearing is scheduled for Feb. 19. He wasn’t drunk — he just really, really, really had to go to the bathroom. I know a certain Vikings fan who might be able to relate.
