Fred Smoot played only two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, but he'll never be forgotten thanks to his history-making role planning the team's 2005 sex cruise on Lake Minnetonka. The cornerback hasn't played in the NFL since 2009, but he's still making a splash. Smoot was arrested on drunken driving charges on Dec. 30 in Washington, D.C. That's bad. He then proceeded to wet his pants in the police station. That's worse. Police detected "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" when they pulled over Smoot, according to a report posted on the Washingtonian website on Thursday. After he failed a field sobriety test, the Love Boat captain was taken downtown, where he twice refused to take a breathalyzer test. Here's where the story gets juicy. While Smoot was being booked, according to the Washingtonian, a police officer noticed a puddle at Smoot's feet, and "urine running down his pant leg." And, no, he had not expressed a need to relieve himself.
