Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, the fifth arrest for a Ravens player this offseason.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Smith was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer after authorities arrived at a bar, responding to a call about an unconscious woman in a bathroom. When police arrived, Smith was with the woman and said he was trying to assist her, but he would not move way after police repeatedly asked him to step aside so paramedics could attend to her.
“We’re gathering information about this,” Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne told the paper.
Smith was released from custody at 11:15 p.m. on Saturday. The woman was taken to a hospital, and police say she was intoxicated.
The Ravens’ other arrests this offseason: Lorenzo Taliaferro for destruction of property and public intoxication, Jah Reid for two counts of battery, Deonte Thompson for suspicion of possession of marijuana and Ray Rice for assault.
Although Smith has stayed out of trouble previously in his NFL career, he had several off-field incidents in both high school and college that led him to drop to the end of the first round of the 2011 NFL draft. Smith has looked like a good draft pick in the three seasons since then, but this arrest only adds to a disappointing offseason in Baltimore.
