NFL Player Robbed At Gunpoint In Local Neighborhood

A member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2002 Super Bowl championship team was robbed at gunpoint Sunday night while visiting family in Detroit, Local 4 reported.

Dwight Smith, a 26-year-old defensive back, now with the New Orleans Saints, had just returned from a market to a home in the 15000 block of Quincy Street on the city's west side when the incident occurred.

Police said a car pulled up in front of the home at about 11 p.m. while Smith and several others, including children, were on the porch and in the yard.

A man exited the vehicle with an assault rifle and ordered Smith to remove his jewelry, according to police.

"A car came speeding down the street. He opened up the door while the car was still moving and he got out the car with a gun and he pointed a gun at Dwight," said a witness, who asked to remain anonymous.

The witness told the station that Smith removed two chains from his neck, a watch and a bracelet and placed it on the ground.

The man then told a woman who was in the car to pick up the jewelry from the ground. The two fled the scene with about $100,000 in jewelry and $4,000 in cash, police said.

Smith has returned to Florida while witnesses continue to assist police with the investigation, the station reported.
