Smith was arrested Monday in King County, Wash. on suspicion of DUI, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "Geno is fully cooperative with the investigation. I hope that an open mind can be kept by all as the facts are ascertained," Smith's attorney Jon Fox said in a statement regarding the incident.
Smith was arrested at 2:10 a.m. local time and released from a King County correctional facility at 9:27 a.m. on his personal recognizance. Head coach Pete Carroll relayed that Smith was present at the Seahawks facility later Monday to take part in end-of-season meetings, so the team will presumably leave it to the NFL to decide whether the 31-year-old quarterback is subject to a fine and/or suspension. Smith, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, appeared in four games (three starts) during his second season in Seattle, completing 65 of 95 attempts for 702 yards and a 5:1 TD:INT to go with 42 rushing yards and one score on the ground.
