Former Washington Redskins cornerback Frederick D. "Fred" Smoot was taken into custody in Loudoun County Oct. 3 after reportedly failing to attend a court hearing in Amherst County.
Smoot, 40, of Ashburn, was served a warrant Thursday and is currently being held in the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Amherst General District Court documents say that Smoot was due in court Sept. 19 following a pair of Aug. 22, 2017, traffic-related charges: driving without a license and expired registration. The hearing would also have involved three charges of being held in contempt of court during former hearings: two offenses on Sept. 7, 2017, and one offense on Sept. 4, 2018.
Smoot's next court date has been set for Oct. 15, his ninth scheduled appearance in Amherst Court since the initial two offenses.
