Update: The case has been postponed until February 17, 2015, at Towson District Court.

Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith arrested on Saturday night, July 12, 2014, at the Greene Turtle in Baltimore, for failing to obey the lawful order of a police officer. In short, police told Smith to back up as he held a girl’s hair back while she was throwing up in a bathroom sink at a bar. Way to pick ’em, Jimmy! And not only was she drunk, she allegedly had blow on her too.

Via The Baltimore Sun, stating relevant parts

Police said they saw Smith in the bathroom with the woman who was intoxicated. Police said that the NFL player was assisting her when she vomited while leaning over a sink.

Smith told police that he and the woman had done a photo shoot together earlier in the evening. Officers later found what they suspected was a small bag of cocaine in the woman’s purse, according to the police report. The woman has not been charged.

Police said that after medics arrived, officers repeatedly asked Smith to step aside and he refused to comply and said several times that he was helping the woman. Police said Smith became argumentative when they asked him to step into the hallway.

Five Ravens have been arrested during the offseason: Running back Ray Rice (felony aggravated assault, Atlantic City, N.J., accepted into pretrial diversion program), offensive lineman Jah Reid (misdemeanor battery, Key West, Fla., accepted into pretrial diversion program), wide receiver Deonte Thompson (felony possession of marijuana, Gainesville, Fla., case dismissed) and rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (misdemeanor destruction of property, drunk and disorderly, Williamsburg, Va., case pending with July 31 court date).

Smith, a 2011 first-round draft pick from Colorado, hadn’t previously been in trouble with the law since joining the Ravens.

When Smith entered the NFL, though, he faced scrutiny about his character because of a history of off-field problems. He was cited for third-degree assault and underage drinking violations.
