Raiders’ Sean Smith Reportedly Arrested On Assault Charges
Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith was reportedly arrested Thursday and charged with felony assault.
The arrest stemmed from allegations that Smith was involved in a physical altercation with his sister’s boyfriend on July 4th.
Smith posted $80,000 bond and was released from custody, according to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Scott Bair.
Smith will reportedly plead not guilty, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur.
Smith has officially been charged with “felony assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury” for allegedly beating and stomping on the victim’s head, according to TMZ.
TMZ reported on Friday that the victim “was hospitalized in critical condition with multiple broken bones in his face” and that “officers responded to calls of an unconscious male on the streets of Pasadena and when help arrived they found him bloody and beaten on the sidewalk.”
