According to TMZ, the alleged victim of Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith’s July 4th attack was hospitalized in critical condition. The gossip website learned that the guy was hospitalized with “multiple broken bones in his face.”
“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,” law enforcement told the website.
The law enforcement reportedly could immediately tell that he had multiple facial fractures. On Thursday, when the news first broke, they said “Smith beat the man and then stomped his head.”
After speaking with multiple witnesses, all the fingers pointed to Smith as the person of interest. The NFL cornerback is reportedly facing up to seven-years in prison if he’s convicted of the felony assault charge that he was arrested for on Thursday.
Smith signed a four-year, $38 million deal with the Raiders in March 2016. After his arrest, he posted an $80,000 bond, but is due back in court in Sept.
Smith and his legal counsel are denying any wrongdoing. He has said he’s going to fight the allegations.
The NFL has also launched an investigation into the matter. Should they find anything, he’s likely facing a suspension. However, if a video surfaces, the Raiders could release him immediately, like the Baltimore Ravens did when the Ray Rice video surfaced several years ago of him beating his girlfriend.
