Troy Smith arrested for drunk driving, marijuana possession


Former Ravens and 49ers quarterback Troy Smith was arrested for drunken driving and marijuana possession in Ohio early this morning.

Smith, who won the Heisman Trophy at Ohio State, was arrested outside Columbus after he was pulled over at 2:38 a.m. today.

Although police say Smith claimed he was not drinking, his blood alcohol content was measured at .143, well over the legal limit of .08. Police also found two marijuana cigarettes in his car, according to the police report.

The Ravens selected Smith in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft. He started two games as a rookie but didn’t start for the Ravens again after that. In 2010 he started six games for the 49ers. Since then he has bounced around pro football in the Canadian Football League and United Football League and briefly spent time on the Steelers’ offseason roster, but he hasn’t been on an NFL regular-season roster since 2010.
