Police find Vikings' Smith with kit to circumvent drug tests

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS - Airport police detained Minnesota Vikings running back Onterrio Smith last month after they found paraphernalia later identified as a kit used to circumvent drug tests, the Star Tribune reported Wednesday.

Police said they didn't arrest or charge Smith, who they said acknowledged he was carrying dried urine, along with a device called "The Original Whizzinator" and a bottle of pills labeled "Cleansing Formula."

Last season, Smith was suspended for four games after testing positive for marijuana. That was his second "strike" in the NFL's substance-abuse program. A third "strike" would result in a yearlong suspension.

Smith, 24, rushed for 579 yards as a rookie and led the Vikings last season with 544 yards.
