NFL Legend Bruce Smith Sacked for DUI

5/15/2009 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Another Buffalo Bill in trouble with the law ... this time it's one of the greatest players of all time.

NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Smith was arrested on DUI charges in Virginia Beach this morning after cops say the former defensive superstar was speeding around 1:42 am.

According to celebrity gossip wire Associated Press, a police spokesman says Smith was also charged with refusing to take a breathalyzer test at the scene.

Smith-- football's all time leading sack leader -- was released a few hours later after posting bond.

Smith was arrested for DUI twice before -- but the case #1 was dismissed and in case #2, Bruce was acquitted.

Bruce is always speeding around town in his black sports car, I knew that would happen again. Why do people drink and drive?? With all your moola Bruce why didn't you hire a driver?

What a disgrace to the Western NY community. What is up with the Buffalo Bills drinking, driving, hit and runs??? Why won't they get suspended for their crimes?? I wouldn't want my kids to look up to these idiots as role models.

I hope he goes to jail. If it were any of us common folk, we'd be in the slammer for sure.

Why is TMZ referring to the Associated Press as a "celebrity gossip wire"?? Don't lump them in with your smutty line of work, TMZ.

Guess he and his didnt get the memo about drunk drivers killing innocent people...maybe his handlers should read it to him and save him not just his good name in public, but possibly innocent people.

This is an outrage and no Fan should ever look to him as anything other than what he truly has become----a Drunk who also Drives.

Selfish Prriick, I hope he hurts himself and not others. btw, he looks as butt ugly in that mug shot as they make them. Thug like too, type none of you would want coming to your house. UG as in Lee.

We've all had a drink here and there. No big deal. Give the guy a break. He's actually a nice guy.

7,8 and 9 - In VA a DUI is guilty until proven innocent. The onus is on the defendent to prove innocence, a refusal counts as an automatic and mandatory guilty, plus one year license revocation, 60 days in jail (usually they suspend 55) and various driver ed, AA etc..that's a FIRST offence..
