Police: Geno Smith was driving 96 mph

SEATTLE — Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith was traveling 96 mph on Interstate 90 shortly before being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Monday morning, according to a report from the Washington State Patrol.

The report states that Smith grew increasingly agitated as it became apparent he would be arrested, and that he refused a blood-alcohol breath test before a warrant for a blood test was submitted and eventually granted. The report said Smith had to be placed under restraints for the blood to be drawn.

Smith was then booked and released Monday morning.

The report said Smith was driving a 2017 two-door Rolls-Royce at approximately 2 a.m. on eastbound I-90 near Mercer Way when an officer observed Smith “approaching me from the rear at a high rate of speed,” assessed to be 96 mph in a 60-mph zone. The report stated that “the vehicle passed me at a high rate of speed.”

At one point, according to the report, Smith told officers to “don’t (expletive) touch me” with George Englebright, the director of team security for the Seahawks, arriving to try to help calm down Smith.

Smith is reported to at one point clenching a fist and giving an officer “a death stare.”
