Smith got a speeding ticket this year, informed ATL, paid it & thought it was over. Per agent AJ Vaynerchuk, a miscommunication occurred & his license was unknowingly suspended. Today, he was pulled over for an expired registration, but wound up arrested for a suspended license. https://t.co/FwoIZeak9k

The Falcons issued a statement on the matter: “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.”

Smith is entering his fifth season in Atlanta after signing a one-year, $2.4 million contract. He has appeared in 66 games with the Falcons, running for 48 yards on 19 carries and catching 22 passes for 136 yards.
