Triggered NFL player arrested for insane speeding and DUI, tells officer the cop has a tiny…manhood

BELLEVUE, WA – Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith was arrested on suspicion of DUI last week after troopers say he was seen driving erratically, hitting speeds of up to 96 mph.

He was arrested around 2 a.m. on Jan. 10 in south Bellevue on Interstate 405, according to the arrest report. The Seahawks beat the Cardinals in Arizona just hours earlier.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Travis Hullinger said he observed Smith’s black Rolls Royce struggle to stay in its lane and, when he activated his emergency lights, fail to stop for more than a mile despite passing wide shoulders and an exit.

When the trooper stopped Smith, the arrest report said:

“(The Trooper) “detected a strong odor of intoxicants and observed the driver had bloodshot, watery eyes.”

Smith reportedly told the trooper that he had drunk some wine earlier in the evening, but claimed he stopped drinking approximately 90 minutes before the traffic stop.

When officers asked him to submit to a standard field sobriety test, he became uncooperative and belligerent, according to police.

Smith began taking the test, but then stopped midway through and refused to complete it. At that time, police arrested him. And transported him to police headquarters.

Once at the police headquarters, the police report states that the quarterback insulted an officer by commenting on his manhood.

According to TMZ, one of the officers was joking about working too much when the insult was made.

The report stated that the officer said:

“I joked with him about how my wife thinks I work too much. Somehow, he said that’s because ‘you have a little d***.’

“I said, wow, maybe that is the problem, then he said, “You have a little d***, you have little d*** syndrome.'”

Smith then refused to take a breathalyzer test, and officers obtained a search warrant.

Officers transported him to a local hospital to have blood drawn. But while at the medical facility, they say the 31-year-old refused to have his blood taken and became enraged. The Seahawks’ director of team security arrived and was also unable to calm down the quarterback.

Trooper Hullinger said he, his partner and sergeant made numerous efforts to de-esculate but they were unsuccessful.

At that point, officers reported that Smith began making threats:

“I’ll f*** every one of y’all (sic) up.

“You don’t want to see me out of these cuffs, you don’t want to know what will happen.”

Smith had to be physically restrained. His hands and feet were placed in restraints in order to obtain the blood sample. Police said he continued to make threats throughout the process. One officer said:

“(Smith said) that we were going to regret this and that we would all be famous for this.”

Smith was then transported to the King County Correctional Facility and booked on DUI charges. He was released on $1,000 bail later that Monday.

Jon Fox, Smith’s attorney, released a statement saying Smith would cooperate with investigators:

“I hope that an open mind can be kept by all as the facts are ascertained.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he checked in with smith during an end-of-season meeting Monday:

“I checked in with him. We have to let his people handle all that. He was in the [team] meeting today with us. I don’t have anything other than that to give to you on that.”

ESPN reported that Smith has been Russell Wilson’s backup quarterback for the past three seasons and played more time this season than any other, playing three games. He completed 65 of 95 passes for 702 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.

 Smith is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after playing on a one-year, $1.2 million contract in 2021.

NFL defensive end tells police ‘my bad’ after leading them on vehicle pursuit, finally gets caught

January 21, 2o22

 

 FRUITLAND PARK, FL – An NFL defensive end for the Jacksonville Jaguars led police on a high-speed pursuit through Lake County, Florida. After he stopped fleeing, he told officers, ‘My bad.’

The Fruitland Park Police reported a patrol officer was running radar on January 16th when he observed a Dodge Ram driving at excessive speed around 1 am.

The officer attempted to stop the truck on SR 205, but the driver, later identified as Lerentee McCray, failed to pull over.

Police allege that McCray began driving at speeds of 100 MPH while swerving on the roadway. Police report that during the chase, McCray allegedly gave officers the middle finger and continued driving.

The pursuit continued until McCray stopped at a 7-11 and walked up to the officers from the Tavares and Astatula Police Departments, fist-bumping one of them that he knew. McCray then reportedly opened up the fuel door of the Tavares police vehicle and told the officer he was going to buy him some gas.

When the officer told McCray that was not necessary, he engaged in conversation with the officers in what was described as bizarre.

McCray then allegedly grabbed hold of one of the officer’s wrists and began to squeeze it “forcefully.”

Officers requested McCray go back to his vehicle while they determined what action it was they were going to take. Instead of sitting in his vehicle, McCray went to the bed of his truck, removed a child’s bike, and placed it on the hood of his vehicle.

Officers said that McCray was “talking in circles” and not responding to questions that the officers were asking. McCray then allegedly went to the back of his truck and laid on the ground, reportedly appearing “as if he wanted to be handcuffed.”

Officers determined that McCray was acting in an altered mental state and felt that he was a danger to himself since he did not appear to be acting rationally. Officers then decided to take him into custody and transported him to a nearby hospital for a medical evaluation.

Officers reported that they spoke to McCray while he was at the hospital about his failure to stop when the Fruitland Police Officer attempted to stop him.

Officers quoted McCray as saying:

“Oh, that was you? My bad.”

Police searched McCray’s truck in the parking lot of the 7-11 and reportedly found marijuana and a shotgun inside. It is not known if McCray had a medical marijuana card or if the shotgun was legally owned by him.

Police ultimately arrested McCray and charged him with fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer. McCray was taken to the county jail and issued a $5,000 bond which he posted and was released.

The Jacksonville Jaguars issued a statement after learning of McCray’s arrest. 

They said:

“We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information. We have no further comment at this time.”

McCray entered the NFL in 2013 as a member of the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Florida. McCray has played for the Green Bay Packers and the Buffalo Bills before joining with the Jaguars in 2017.

The NFL has yet to issue any type of statement on the issue which could land the free agent with some type of suspension based on the outcome of the police investigation.
