Soon, the owner of the landscape truck returned from the Tax Assessor’s Office nearby, and the witness told him what happened. They then contacted police and described the male as being a young black male with an athletic build and having a cast on his hand. Investigators located Smith on Friday. When they arrested him, they found a Carolina Panthers football helmet in his car.

Smith signed with Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and played with the Carolina Panthers in 2012 and 2013.
