WXIA — Alabama sophomore Geno Smith, who was a former standout football player for St. Pius X, was charged with driving under the influence Sunday morning and booked by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, according to AL.com.
The sheriff’s department confirmed the report Sunday afternoon.
Smith’s bond has been set at $1,000.
As a freshman in 2012, the 6-foot, 186-pound defensive back played in 13 games for the Crimson Tide, including the SEC Championship and the National Championship.
