Dwitht Smith in trouble AGAIN.....

Access Vikings:

Smith cited for marijuana possession

December 14th, 2007 – 5:01 PM by Kevin Seifert Vikings S Dwight Smith was ticketed Thursday night in downtown Minneapolis for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and obstructing traffic, according to a police report obtained today.

According to the police report:

At 10:11 p.m., a Minneapolis police officer noted Smith’s vehicle impeding traffic at the intersection of 2nd Ave. South and Fourth St. South, near Sheik’s nightclub.

When the vehicle did not clear the lane, the officer approached the car to issue a citation and smelled the “strong odor of marijuana” from the vehicle.

According to the report, Smith “admitted he just got done smoking some marijuana.”

The fine for misdemeanor possession of marijuana is $125 for a first offense. Smith almost certainly will face far stiffer punishment from the NFL under its substance abuse policy, ranging from one game check to a four-game suspension depending upon his status in the league’s confidential program.

This marks the second time in two seasons that Smith has been cited for misconduct in downtown Minneapolis and his fourth legal incident since entering the NFL in 2001.

The most recent citation came in August 2006, when Smith was cited for indecent conduct with a woman in stairwell. Coach Brad Childress suspended Smith for the opening game of last season as punishment for that incident.

Childress also has disciplined Smith on two other occasions, one for missing a team meeting in 2006 and another for what Smith called a “heated discussion” between the two. On both occasions, Childress benched Smith for the first series of the next game.

In an interview, Childress would not say whether Smith will play in Monday night’s game against Chicago.

“We’ve been extremely proactive with the first precinct police officers and the inspector,” Childress said. “The allegations are under investigation and I’ll have further comment after more information comes to light.”

Smith practiced Friday with the team, but the Star Tribune did not learn of the incident after today’s media access period. Smith was not available to comment afterwards.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!
