Former Ohio State football assistant Zach Smith is once again in trouble with the law. According to a report from Kyle Rowland of the Toledo Blade, Smith was booked into Delaware County Jail for violating a Civil Protection Order. Smith reportedly got confrontational with staff members at Scioto Ridge Elementary for not being allowed to pick up his children.
Smith is due in court Friday morning for his arraignment.
From Sports Illustrated:
Smith and his ex-wife Courtney reportedly agreed to a three-year domestic violence protection order in October of 2018. The former Buckeyes’ assistant also pled guilty to disorderly conduct in an agreement to reduce his criminal trespassing charge from last May.
Smith first found himself in the headlines last summer when he was fired after an order of protection was filed against him and multiple domestic violence allegations surfaced. Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was also suspended as a result of his handling of the domestic violence allegations.
The allegations against Smith first began when he was a member of the University of Florida coaching staff under Meyer.
