Disorderly conduct charge against Ravens CB Jimmy Smith dropped

Tuesday February 3rd, 2015

A misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was dropped, his lawyer told The Baltimore Sun.

Smith had been due in court on Feb. 17 to face a charge of failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order of a law enforcement officer, stemming from an incident in July when Smith was assisted a woman in a restaurant, who had vomited in a sink.

Police had asked Smith three times to leave the scene so medical personnel could attend to the woman, and Smith allegedly refused and began to curse at the officers.

"Jimmy is thrilled to put this case behind him," Smith's attorney Warren Alperstein told The Baltimore Sun. "It’s a relief for him to have this over with."

Smith was placed on injured reserve after suffering a Lisfranc injury in his right foot during a Week 8 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Smith, the team’s No. 1 cornerback, had 28 tackles and one interception last season for Baltimore and only allowed 20 receptions all season.
