According to a screenshot from the Police Department obtained by local Fox station KTVU, Smith’s charges include Hit & Run, DUI, and vandalism charges. His bail was set for $US26,000.

 Smith  has been embroiled with legal troubles throughout his career. Per ProFootball Talk:

Smith was arrested for DUI in 2012, faced weapons charges later that year after an incident at his house that left him with stab wounds and then picked up another DUI after getting into a car accident in September 2013. He entered a rehab facility after that accident and missed five games during the 2013 season.
