Raiders cornerback allegedly beat sister's boyfriend

Raiders cornerback allegedly beat sister's boyfriend

Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith was arrested Thursday for allegedly assaulting his sister's boyfriend in Old Town Pasadena on the Fourth of July.

On Tuesday morning, July 4, 2017, at approximately 1:10AM Pasadena Police patrol officers responded to the 100 block of South Arroyo Parkway regarding an unconscious adult male down on the sidewalk. If convicted, the ninth-year player could face up to seven years in prison.

TMZ Sports shares the news on Smith, whom they say has been charged with both assault and battery.

The Oakland Raiders have not commented on the alleged incident, which is said to have taken place during a six-week break in the team's training schedule.

"I told our guys two major things - make sure that you're taking care of your bodies so you arrive in camp ready to work".

He added: "More occurrences than ever happen this time of year".

Smith will plead not guilty on all charges, according to his attorney.

Smith was drafted by the Miami Dolphins and played there and for the Kansas City Chiefs before signing a four-year, $40million contract with Oakland last year.

Pasadena law enforcement's investigation into Smith is pending, the DA's office said.

Even though Smith was likely going to be surpassed by Carrie or Conley sometime this season, his nine years of experience and presence added some value at a position that is relatively young and thin.

Smith, from Pasadena, is in his second season with the Raiders. Smith and the Raiders are scheduled to host the Rams in a preseason game on Saturday. "The plan is to fight the charges all the way through", Rosenberg said.
