Bruce Smith pleads guilty to DUI

In May 2009, Hall of Fame defensive end Bruce Smith was arrested for DUI. He was convicted in a low-level court in July, and he appealed the decision.

While awaiting another trial, Smith opted to plead guilty.

After being pulled over on May 14, Smith failed a field sobriety test, and he refused to submit to a breath test. He will pay a $1,000 fine and enroll in an alcohol safety program. He also must stay out of trouble for a year.

It was Smith’s third DUI charge since 1997. The first was dismissed, and the second resulted in an acquittal.
