Taj Smith WR Indianapolis Colts
Taj Smith of the Indianapolis Colts, who was originally signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse, has the big honor of being the first NFL player arrested this decade!! Congratulations -- I think? Smith was arrested for DUI early January first. Smith was pulled over for crossing the center line and swerving all over the road. Police said he smelled of alcohol and had to "pull himself from his car"... Now I imagine that as if he was some morbidly obese man that had to legitimately pull himself from his car, but I don't understand what the cop was saying there. He failed a field sobriety test and allegedly had a BAC over the legal limit of .08. His stay with the now no longer undefeated Colts may be short now.
Edit, awesome better coverage: Taj, who's full name is Tajiddin Smith-Wilson was pulled over for speeding and driving on the white lines at 3:30AM, he ended up blowing a .13, over the legal limit of .08. He was very apologetic to the officer, of course, because he was trying to bring his 2 female companions back to the hotel room. Threesome anybody?
