Jimmy Smith has happy mugshot after arrest for helping cocaine overdoser

Jimmy Smith mug shot

Does this look like the face of a man arrested for doing something wrong?

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was arrested on Saturday night for allegedly disturbing the peace while assisting a woman who overdosed on cocaine at a Towson bar.

Police were called to The Greene Turtle after a woman was found unconscious in the bathroom. Smith was in the bathroom trying to assist her and told police he had done a photoshoot with the woman earlier in the evening. A small bag of cocaine allegedly was found in the woman’s purse.

Smith was trying to help the woman and allegedly would not follow officers’ orders when asked to move aside.

Details via The Baltimore Sun:

According to the police report, Smith was told that because he wasn’t related to the woman and wasn’t helping her that he needed to leave so that medical personnel could attend to her and Smith replied: “I am helping her.”

According to the police report, Smith was asked three times by an officer to leave the restroom before being ushered out to the hallway. Smith allegedly cursed at the arresting officer and asked him “What the [expletive] are you gonna do?” When told again to leave, Smith replied: [Expletive] you. What the [expletive] are you gonna do?”

Smith is the fifth Ravens player arrested this offseason, though he is by far the happiest. I think you have to let the guy go based solely on that mugshot. Nobody that happy could have possibly done something wrong.

Did Jimmy Smith hold Michael Crabtree on Niners last play in Super Bowl?

Michael-Crabtree-Jimmy-Smith-pass-interferenceThe officiating crew for Super Bowl XLVII used their flags quite sparingly down the stretch, which many believe helped the Baltimore Ravens hold on to beat the San Francisco 49ers. On what turned out to be the Niners’ last drive of the game, Jim Harbaugh felt that the Ravens got away with pass interference on two plays.

The first came on 2nd-and-goal, when Colin Kaepernick rolled to the right and tried to hit Michael Crabtree near the sideline. Baltimore cornerback Corey Graham appeared to jump on Crabtree’s back to break up the play, and it looked as though he may have gotten there early. It was a bang-bang play that could have gone either way and there was no call.

Then on 4th-and-goal, it seemed a bit more obvious that the Ravens got some help from the refs. Baltimore sent several blitzers on the play, forcing Kaepernick to just float a pass toward Crabtree in the back right corner of the end zone. As you can see from the video above, it appeared that Jimmy Smith held him while the ball was in the air.
