Tennessee football standout Josh Smith has found himself in trouble with the law this weekend.
According to reports, Smith was arrested early Saturday morning on domestic assault charges after an altercation in his off-campus residence with his roommate.
The news was first reported by Jimmy Hyams of WNML AM-FM Radio in Knoxville.
Smith is being held on $2,000 bond.
According to WATE, Smith was drinking with his roommate Kennedy Foster when the fight broke out. Foster suffered non-series injuries to his face. Smith allegedly broke down the door to Foster’s bedroom after becoming worried when Foster locked himself inside. That is when the altercation broke out with Smith alleging Foster “looked at him as if he was an intruder.”
Smith’s attorney does not believe any charges will stick.
Smith and Foster are also long-time friends.
