KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was cited for driving under the influence and careless driving after an officer witnessed him lose control and strike a light pole early Monday.

According to a copy of the police report, Smith was attempting to make a turn in Kansas City's Power & Light entertainment district when he struck the light pole about 12:30 a.m. The officer reported that Smith "appeared confused and began mumbling statements that I did not understand."

Smith declined medical attention. His vehicle sustained significant damage to the front and undercarriage, and the light pole was left broken on the sidewalk.

"We are aware of the situation involving Sean Smith. Whenever one of our players is involved in an incident like this it is disappointing," the Chiefs said in a statement to The Associated Press. "We will have no further comment at this time as this is an ongoing legal matter."

Smith was present for the team's voluntary workout Tuesday but did not speak to reporters.

Along with citations for driving under the influence and careless driving, Smith was also cited for failure to provide insurance. It was not known whether he had hired a lawyer.

The 26-year-old Smith was among the Chiefs' significant off-season acquisitions a year ago, signing a $16.5 million, three-year contract. He started all but one game at cornerback, making 47 stops and two interceptions while helping the Chiefs go 11-5 and reach the playoffs. Smith is expected to start at cornerback again this season.

The Chiefs wrap up voluntary workouts Friday and convene for a mandatory three-day minicamp next week. Their first preseason game is Aug. 7 against Cincinnati.
