Raiders CB Smith arrested for felony assault

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to TMZ, Sean Smith, an Oakland Raiders cornerback, who signed with the team in the off-season, was arrested and charged with felony assault. Smith signed a $40 million deal to sign with the team in March 2016.

He alleged got into a fight with his sister’s boyfriend. The incident took place on July 4th — and the website reported, “[he] beat and stomped on his head in Pasadena in the early hours.”

Smith, a cornerback, forcibly produced great bodily injury or battery with serious bodily injury, which is why he was charged and arrested with the felony assault. If he’s convicted, his NFL career is over, as he could face up to seven-years in prison.

While the law enforcement authorities allege he did it, his attorney, Daniel Rosenberg, alleges that Smith is innocent. He’s also vowing to fight the allegations in the court of law.

Smith has been in the police blotter before, especially in 2014. He had a car accident, which he smashed into a light pole, and he was then convicted of DUI.

At this time, the Raiders have not released a comment on the matter. It’ll be interesting to see how the Raiders, or even the NFL, especially NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, would handle this matter, because he could definitely be facing a suspension, or possibly even a fine, for this news coming out.
