The Atlanta Falcons released a statement acknowledging Smith’s arrest.

“We are aware of a legal matter involving Keith Smith this afternoon and have been informed of its details. We will have no further comment at this time.

Keith Smith has played for the Atlanta Falcons since 2019. On Mar. 19, Smith signed a one-year extension with the team. He spent most of the Falcons’ 2022 season with the special teams unit.

Cops arrested Falcons practice-squad wideout Cameron Batson in December for instigating a police chase in ATL. The Falcons released Batson promptly after his run-in with the law.

Then there’s the Georgia Bulldogs: the reigning CFP champs with a string of offseason violations on the road. One of the on-road incidents resulted in a fatal crash that claimed two lives: Bulldogs OL Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy.
