Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Arrested

An offseason that has been filled with drama and off-field incidents for the Baltimore Ravens continued this weekend. A report from The Baltimore Sun indicates that starting cornerback Jimmy Smith was arrested late Saturday night on misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges. 

Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct Saturday night after an alleged incident at The Greene Turtle in Towson, according to Baltimore County police.

Police said Smith, 25, was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer.

While not an extremely serious incident, Smith’s arrest is yet another example of off-field problems for the cornerback.

When Smith entered the league as a first-round pick in 2011, there was a lot of concern about his character. While at Colorado, Smith failed a drug test, was arrested on third-degree assault charges and underage drinking.

For the Ravens, it’s yet another incident involving one of their players and law enforcement officials this offseason. Smith is the fifth player on the roster to be arrested since the Super Bowl.
